2015 Pantone Quilt Challenge - an update

I've been working away on my Marsala quilt, and I know Anne has been working on hers too.  We thought it was time to remind everyone about the 2015 Pantone Quilt Challenge, since the deadline for entries is coming up pretty quickly!

Marsala medallion progress

This is where I'm at with my Marsala quilt.  If you're interested, you can check out my last post on this quilt.  I've made a lot of progress, with all 12 of the 12" traditional blocks finished (although the one in the bottom left corner is really bugging me so I may well end up re-making it).  I'm hoping to work on the border in between the central block and the traditional blocks this weekend, but I also need to get all the appliqué in the central block stitched down before I add to it.

As always, feel free to grab the button and share it!

2015 Pantone Quilt Challenge: Marsala

You can find all the details on my 2015 Pantone Quilt Challenge page.

The key dates are:

- April 17, 2015 - linky party opens
- April 24, 2015, at 11pm PST - entries close
- April 29, 2015 - winners announced

I've been loving seeing all the progress on people's quilts on Instagram - it's really exciting to see all the different things people are doing with Marsala.  We are sharing quilts there using the tag #pantonequilt2015.  I really cannot wait to see the quilts that are linked up in April.  Even if you haven't started anything yet, I definitely reckon there's still time - especially for a mini quilt or a quilt top.

I feel like pushing myself to use Marsala, a colour that's definitely out of my usual comfort zone, has really helped me be more creative and try things that I perhaps wouldn't otherwise have thought of.  That's why I love these challenges, and I encourage you to give it a go even if Marsala isn't your favourite colour!

Wow this quilt just gets better and better. It is looking beautiful and rich and saturated and.... Just wonderful!

So beautiful - really love your colour palette!

It's looking great Adrienne. The purple really lifts it. I think marsala is a colour that needs to be near another brighter colour, because on it's own, it's not that enticing.

This is going to be a wonderful quilt Adrianne! Marsala is certainly not a colour I am drawn to so I admire you for creating such a beauty!
