As part of a growing and changing quilter, I take classes, sign up for teachers blogs and enjoy the work people share on public media and at guild meetings. One teacher, Jenny Lyon, who is an amazing free-motion quilter, writes each week. She includes updates on works in progress, who, what and where she had or is teaching and then she adds sweet places to check out. In one of her recent posts, she mentioned the Pantone Quilt Challenge 2019 – Living Coral. You can access it from Bryanhousequilts.com or nohatsinthehouse.com.
It seems I was meant to work on this challenge. Everything coral, shirts, jig-saw- puzzles and many of my husbands seashells caught my eye. I downloaded the rules, bookmarked several inspirational pictures, and purchased coral fabric from one of my local fabric stores. Instead of getting started right away and blogging every week, my husband and I went on a three week trip to Colorado, Utah, Arizona and Texas. I’m home now and ready to design, piece and quilt.
Here are a few pictures of my recent work.
