If you are interested in taking a challenge to work with colors that may be outside your regular color choices, be sure and stop by 15 Minutes Play where Victoria has come up with a fun new color challenge. Each Wednesday, she will post a new color to play with. Our first color is
There seems to be quite a bit of difference of opinion about just what color mauve is. I happen to like the color, but it turns out not to be a favorite of most quilters who are playing along. Fortunately, my Sister-In-Law had a piece in her stash, and I brought my favorite scraps, so I was ready to play.
The mauve borders are 3" wide, so that should give you some idea about the size of the block I created. This is the block style I intend to create for each color. I hope I like the rest of the colors in the challenge, 12 in all, as much as I like this one. At least I hope I can create something interesting that I can live with. I am sure Victoria will throw in a brown at some point, and I will just have to cope. After all, it is a challenge.
