One of the displays at our guild Quilt Show this spring will be a Paint Chip Challenge. We had guild members pick a paint chip sample out of a bag, no peeking, and they have to make a quilted item using those colors. We want this to be fun so just have the public vote for their favourites instead of judging. So the quilt above is Lynn’s Paint Chip Challenge baby quilt. As you can see she got a green paint sample and when I saw her sample card she did a great job matching the colors. My paint chip I picked was brown and gold! I have no clue what I’m going to make but I better figure it out soon as our show is at the end of April! I’ve seen a lot of the members projects and they are fantastic so it will be a great display for the public.
I wanted to show you the before picture of this quilt as Lynn felt the quilting really transformed it.
Lynn wanted Dream Puff batting and light quilting so it stays soft and cuddly. She came up with her own design for this quilt and after some discussion we came up with a quilting plan. CC’s in the green fabrics, large swirls in the white. I call this Fluffy Modern! Most modern quilts use flat batting with simple or heavy quilting but I really like how this looks with some much soft texture, perfect for a baby quilt. The backing is a white Minkie Dots so that ups the fluffy factor!
Here is a link to the tutorial on how to make this quilt pattern.
Hope this inspires our guild members to get there Paint Chip Challenges done, it has inspired me!
