On the cutting table: Pantone Quilt Challenge

I've been working on a new quilt for the Pantone Quilt Challenge. The last day to enter is March 21st, so I have a little time left to finish up. The challenge is to use Pantone's color of the year, Radiant Orchid, as the primary color for a quilt. The size, style and other colors can vary. There are prizes, but I think best part about this challenge is seeing everyone's interpretation of this color.

I started with an inspiring palette and sketched out a few design ideas. Once I had one I liked I purchased coordinating solids.

When my fabric arrived the real work started. Pressing, cutting and piecing together the top.

I came up with the design while I was knitting a scarf. It is all about playing with color, celebrating different shades and how they relate to each other. Each section of stripes leads into the next.

Next up... quilting. There are so many possibilities!
