I think I wrote about our new challenge a few months back, but to refresh...a member takes a turn picking out a picture they like and then going to a paint store and picking out 4-8 color chips they think define the colors in their picture. Then they give each member the same chips and we have to go home and create a quilt or work of art of some kind with those colors. A couple of our group work better with paper and found objects than with fabric which is ok with all.
When I started, I decided to journal each month with the picture that inspired, the color chips, and the fabrics I pulled from my stash to use. So far, this is what we have done.
|Challenge #1-Color chips on Left/ fabric on right-fish from picture|
|My quilt for #1|
|The Picture from Bethany|
|My journal entry-again chips on the left and fabric on the right. Bethany told us we could use black or white.|
|Picture taken by Beth's daughter-close up of dew on a flower!|
|My journal entry-chips-left/fabric-right|
|My quilt for #3|
And Challenge #4 by Lynn:
I haven't put these into my journal yet. Lynn had just returned from a trip to Scotland and was influenced by the Cairns piled around so she presented her chips to us as such! Clever girl! But these are the fabrics I have chosen to work with...am eager to get going on a quilt with them..I have my idea just need the time to do it.
