Focus Through the Prism – A Series of Project QUILTING Off Season Challenges
Purchase: Special ROYGBIV fabric Bundle from Cherrywood Fabrics
One block-inspired challenge will be issued each month for seven months. Use that block, plus ONE fabric from your special ROYGBIV bundle, then add anything else you need to create a 20” finished quilt by the month's deadline.
- Each final project should read predominantly as one color in the spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, or violet.
- A ROYGBIV hand-dyed color bundle of fabric must be purchased from Cherrywood Fabrics
- You must use ONE fabric from the ROYGBIV challenge bundle in each quilt
- Any other fabrics from your stash may be added.
- You must use the month's block
- Quilts must finish 20” square.
Challenges must be completed by each monthly deadline
You can participate in as many monthly challenges as you’d like (one, or all seven!) but each challenge quilt MUST be started and finished within that month.
A NEW TWIST: the quilts also must be available to be shipped to me in January 2016 and in my possession for up to one year.
The end goal for this special challenge series is to build a controlled spectrum display of 20” quilts featuring seven traditional quilt blocks. A jury of your quilting peers will select top quilts in each colorway, and my hope is to submit this to quilt shows as a special exhibit illustrating the creativity a Project QUILTING challenge can inspire.
At the very least I will put up a spontaneous outdoor quilt show on the deer fence in the orchard photographed by Karmen Lindner Photography.

Challenges must be completed by the end of each month regardless if it’s a month with 30 or 31 days.
Prize: To be announced but I promise I’ll get something good put together!
