I'm sure you know by now that Pantone's color of the year is Marsala. Hmmmm...... not an exciting color in my mind and not a color that is readily available in modern quilting fabric. Our Modern Guild board decided to choose our own color of the year for 2015 to challenge our members.
Each board member chose a different color she liked, and in January, we put fat quarters of those colors up on the design wall and let all of our members vote for their favorite. The chosen color was a beautiful turquoise.
The next month, everyone brought a yard of fabric that had that turquoise color in it and we had a One Yard Rip Off..... if you're not familiar with what that is, I described it here. Each guild member took their pile of fabrics home and challenged themselves to make something to share. What a wonderful collection of projects they had to share last Tuesday! I thought you'd like to see pictures of some of them here....
There were some mini quilts....
