I'm making this quilt as part of my guild's show team challenge for next year. We were told to choose a fabric from an array of colors without knowing why. I chose the Nautical Blue one. The rules for the challenge are to use the fabric we chose, make a quilt to be displayed in next's year's show, use only solid-color fabric, and have it photo ready by February. (I may not make the deadline. I'm home recovering from surgery and will have to go back to full-time work in two weeks.)
The first picture is the design that I've come up with. It is made up of mostly three-inch half-square triangles. There will be a six-inch outside border of pale peach around the design. It needs to be about six inches longer. What would you add to the ends to make it longer?
The second picture shows the fabric colors that I am using. I put the unsewn blocks of the center design on my display board to get an idea of how the fabrics would play together. They certainly contrast, don't they?
Second question: How would you quilt this?
I'm tired and am running out of ideas.
