Challenge Sampler Quilt

Are you guys ready for some fun!

This quilt has been designed as part of my guild challenge, however, as the blocks I have come up with will be fantastic skill builder’s especially for those who have done my Beginner Quilt Lessons.  So far, It’s only a virtual quilt and will now start work on the actual quilt blocks.

My usual style is to design symmetrical quilts using a limited colour palette.  Designing this quilt has been a challenge for me on many levels, all the blocks are unique with a myriad of colours used and the layout is also asymetrical.   In this quilt each block has been designed as per the criteria outlined under Challenge Instructions, hence I have used a wide range of colours to fit the criteria.  Having said that, there has to be some semblance of harmony amongst the chaos, therefore I chosen to use grey as my stabilising colour.  All the blocks are kept simple but fun, as I go along I might work on them a little bit more to add interest.  So watch this space.
