Quilt Guild Paint Chip Challenge


My local quilt guild, the Loose Threads, has a challenge this month: the Paint Chip Challenge. We were to choose paint chips that started with the initials of our name: first, middle/maiden/, last. And not just a simple color name like Pink, but more like the Pleased as Punch that I chose.
Below you see the paint chips that match up with my initials: Pleased as Punch, Tree Fern, and Providence Gold (PTP). An additional same # of fabrics could be added, and I just needed to add one, my favorite white: Kona cotton in Snow.  The only restriction was one of size: the piece needs to be at least 45" on each side. I just made the cut with my 50" X 50" baby quilt. We have our monthly meeting next Monday when all will be revealed! After that I will post a finished photo.

It will be fun to see what this creative bunch of quilters has made :-)

    1. It is, isn't it?! And I was happy to see that so far we have a fair amount of our members participating since this was a Challenge that I proposed to the group :-) I found the idea online somewhere.......wish I could remember where!

  2. I really like your color choices. They're good colors for a 1930's quilt. And the green print looks like a 30's repro print.
