This is my first time to be apart of the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It seems I never finish one on time to participate. Today is the day :)
We had a fun challenge at our MQG called the Wonky Paint Chip Challenge. We each got to pick out a paint chip and had to use 2 of 3 colors on the chip. I picked one that was golden to pale yellow and knew immediately that I wanted to pair it with gray. I have been loving that color combo lately. I got to thinking about the "WONKY" part of the challenge and looked all over pinterest for inspiration. I fell in love with this pin. It went together really fast and was a lot of fun to sew together. There wasn't a lot of hard thinking. Sometimes it's so nice to not think and just sew :) I named it yellow lighting for obvious reasons, but when my mom saw it she saw gray lighting. Well! It's interesting to me that people can look at the exact same piece and see something completely different. When you look at it what do you see, the yellow or the gray lighting? For the first time ever, I tried my hand at hand quilting and it was a lot fun. I don't know if I could do a huge project yet, but something this small was perfect. The mini finished up at 15" X 20".
