Challenged

Talk about killing two birds with one stone with the challenges.
This wall hanging came about as part of our guild "paint chip" challenge. Last fall we blindly picked two paint chips and had to create something with just those two values and one other colour plus white if you wished. 
Then as I was creating this piece, 
along came
with the exact same colours as their first challenge of the summer.

It was meant to be! 

So this is officially my post for Summer of Colour 2012 and I will post more about the guild challenge after the big reveal at the guild wind-up BBQ on Tuesday night (pray for no more rain!!!)




Thanks for visiting!

  2. I love the little bits of detail on the leaves. I wish fabric didn't run screaming from me, and I could learn to quilt.
