Each year the guild has a "Challenge Quilt." This year the challenge is put on by the quilters down in Mesquite, NV (they travel 45 miles to come to our guild meetings). And what a fun twist they have added to the challenge. We are to go to a paint counter (at one of the big box stores ore Ace or wherever there are paint color samples) and pick out colors that have one of the three initials in our name in the paint swatch's name. For example, my first initial is "A" so I chose a color called "Retro Avocado." So, here are all the "A" colors I found:
The lady who was presenting the idea said that one of her initials is "K" and that she had a heck of time finding any swatches with the letter "K." Well so did I:
and not the greatest colors either, if you ask me. I love bright!!!
And so, if "K" was so hard, I was thinking that "Y," my last initial, would be pretty hard too. I was guessing, before I started, that "yellow" was going to be about the only "Y" colors I would find. Well, bingo, I was right - except one of the yellows was "Egg Yolk" and even though it is yellow, it didn't have yellow in the name!!!
Now, we can add 3 more colors (any color we choose and they don't have to be an "initial" color). So, since the "K" colors and the "Y" colors are limited, I am going to have to rely on the "A" colors to give me the perfect combination with the help of the added colors. Stayed tuned!!
