New Challenge


There's a MQG challenge that interested me, it involves using a palette of solids that Chawne Kimber chose from the Windham's Ruby+Bee. I decided that I liked the colors and the idea of designing and making a quilt in all solids which I haven't ever done. I had to hunt around to find the colors and ended up buying them from The French Seam and Hawthorne Supply.

The names of the colors are evocative: Russet, Mandarin, Vanilla Custard, Pool, Cornflower, Stormy. The fabric has a lovely hand, and washed up without any excess dye release.

Of course when one is on fabric supplier websites, other purchases tend to happen although I tried to limit it. Grey swirly fabric from Paula Nadelstern, and two pieces from a recent Halloween themed Alice in Wonderland.

This cool panel by Libs Elliot, The Watcher. Maybe the start for another baby quilt?

And more fusible batting from Hancocks of Paducah, so I don't have to do the spraying thing, even though it works well, the fusible batting is easier.

Looks interesting. The russet isn't my color, but I am sure you'll do something great. What's the deadline?

I'm not too into the russet but it goes really well with the other colors. The deadline is 10/31.
