challenge entry

My guild challenge this year was the "Paint Chip" challenge.  In this challenge you are given a random paint chip sample and must use those colors in a quilt.  We were allowed to add one additional color. Since I was in charge I felt I should have an entry.

Of course, I didn't get around to starting mine until last week and it's due Dec. 14.  I figured a table runner would be quick and easy.  NOT.  Since my colors reminded me of ocean colors, I wanted to use Storm at Sea designs.  Then I put the blocks on point.  Now it's too big!  It would need to be a large table!!  I'll get it quilted and it will be ready in time.

My paint chip.  I added gray.
The quilt will finish about 30 x 56 inches.
The background is light with gray swirls.
 Thanks for checking in.


  1. It came out beautiful though. 60" tables aren't that big.

  2. Now you've given it away! I'll know which one is yours.

  3. That's a clever theme for a guild challenge. 2017 is our next challenge year. I'm going to suggest the paint chip!
