The small guild that I belong to had a "Crayon Challenge" among the members to reveal at the show. The rules were:
- Two crayons were blindly pulled from a bag that included 64 Crayola Crayons.
- If you hated one of the colors, you could put one back in and draw again. One time. No more!
- Fabrics had to be in the colors of the crayons you drew -- and you could use any shade that could be created by coloring on a white sheet of paper - depending on the pressure you used.
- You were allowed to add one more color to the quilt -- but it had to be from the box of 64 crayons and that shade only. No scribbling for shades.
- Size could be anywhere from 40" x 40" to 51" x 51".
The pictures I took are terrible and don't do the quilts justice.
The primary crayons for this quilt was Spring Green and Raw Sienna and Salmon was added as an accent. It's made from Celtic Pieced Illusions by Karen Combs. Alas, it wasn't finished either.
I hope you've had a chance to celebrate quilting in whatever manner worked best for you today! Jan
