|How perfectly the shades of blue come together to show off the pattern in J's piece.|
|The name of this piece was 'Pumpkin' for Pat|
W's piece used coordinating mauves. Note that the mauve colors from the paint chips were toned (purple with white and grey added). Sorry if a few photos are blurry. I found quilter's talk with their hands!
I am not sure of the name of P's piece but she often sews with the selvage edges and that is what she did here. Now that is a lot of sewing.
|N's was a disappearing 'Nine' Patch in soft pinks.|
|F stepped outside the box and choose her own paint chips from her daughter in law's recent renovation project. Now she has a perfect gift.|
B's colors perfectly coordinate. Note that the paint chip designer chose lights, mediums, and darks for us which helped in showcasing the pattern.
J wasn't too pleased with her colors as she said she is attracted to bright colors but 'heh' this table runner is perfectly coordinated in neutrals and someone will love it.
|Shades of brown: 2 medium dark prints, one tan and one off white placed with the toned blue are stunning.|
|H's block. Note this set of colors contained a complementary color scheme of blue and orange but because the orange was so toned it became a brown, setting off the blue perfectly without being too strong.|
|F created a 'Cat Mat' for the challenge.|
'Sun Bonnet Sue' was S's choice of block. Look at the many tints (yellow with white) and tones (yellow with grey) this piece has. The quilt 'Sue' is hanging stands free from the main piece being only attached at the top.
|N's piece is a Nine Patch. What is it about the colors from this paint chip that evoke a feeling of nostalgia?|
|'Card Trick' was the name of this block but C renamed it 'C's Crazy Card Trick' because of all the challenges she had with it.|
|L liked the colors in her paint chip selection and they make a strong statement in this block with the light and dark (values).|
J's block was 'Johnny Around the Corner' and it also grew a little bigger than 36" square. Lovely quilt. Again the designer that selected the paint chip colors paid attention to values and the use of neutrals. It transposes to quilting so well.
|Coordinating Paint Chip Colors and my piece started.|
|Completed 'Mug Rug' mini quilts.|
