I have to set a new goal for myself this month, so my initial goal is to finish my challenge quilt for the guild challenge. We had to blindly pick two paint chips and make a two color quilt using the colors on the paint chips. We were allowed to add one other color, and a background color as well. My paint chips were purple and violet (oh boy - what a combination - basically purple and purple). We could use multiple values of those colors, of course. I chose to add indigo to the mix, and for my 'background' color, I chose peach, which I put in the foreground instead of the background.
Here is what I have so far:
I am adding some peach colored yoyo's to the corners to embellish among the appliques. The yoyos have beading to make them more 'flower like' - I hope it all comes out okay - and of course those kimonos have to be sewn onto the quilt - right now they are just pinned.
I have until April 10th to finish this one up, because that is the reveal date for the challenge. I hope it goes over well - I've had a lot of fun making and quilting this one.
The initial posting for the online '2013 finishes' challenge is at this site. The reveal for the paint chip challenge is not online - it's at my monthly guild meeting. Wish me luck - the quilts get voted on by the entire guild membership.
What a Sweet Retreat!
