2017 Pantone Quilt Challenge

One comment

Do you ever find yourself leaving a quilt store with fabrics in shades of your favorite colors over and over again? It’s a common quilter’s dilemma, loving lots of colors but too often sticking to a cherished few. I hardly know I’m doing it until I get home and I find myself adding to my ever-growing stash of turquoise!

It’s totally understandable. Our favorite colors are the colors that make us happy. They give us a kind of satisfaction unlike other colors. They are comfortable, and appealing, and a lot less difficult than working with colors we don’t like.

At the same time, doing the same thing over and over again can be a little boring. Even as a devoted turquoise-lover, I want to work with new colors that inspire and challenge me as a quilter, that push me to grow, and that result in surprising new creations.

This year’s 2017 Pantone Quilt Challenge sponsored by Bryan House Quilts and No Hats in the House is a great opportunity to do just that. Based on the 2017 Pantone color of the year, Greenery, the challenge invites quilters to create a quilt featuring green.

I love green, and I have a hard time using it. What could be more perfect?  Check out the color below and read more about Pantone’s color of the year.
