Paint Chip Challenge

My quilt guild, the Temecula Valley Modern Quilt Guild's current challenge is the Paint Chip Challenge.  I went to Home Depot and relieved them of lots of paint chip samples; took them home and cut them up and at the October meeting issued the challenge.

How it works:

  • Each participant will draw two paint chips at random
  • You can add one other color of your choice, or draw an additional chip for a real challenge.
  • You can add one neutral.
  • Make a quilted project using those colors. Fabric can be solids or prints.
  • Project due in February 2018.

Almost everyone, including me, drew 3 paint chips.

These are my paint chips and the fabric I matched to them.

And this is the design I came up with.  I call it Any Which Way!  This is only the quilt top, right now it's at the long-arm quilters, waiting for her to do her magic.
May your bobbins always be full,
