    Crayon Challenge Quilt

    Last year at a retreat I picked 3 colors, cornflower blue, orchid and orange and the challenge was to make a quilt at least 40 x 40 with those 3 colors in it. The blue and orange part was easy but getting some orchid in the quilt was a but of a problem until I decided to make flower blocks as flowers come in those colors.

    I had only the top finished in time for this year's retreat which was this past weekend. I'm going to quilt it and send it to my nephew and his wife who live in Colorado as they are expecting their 4th DD in a month or so.

    I love the pattern you chose - it shows off the colors really nicely.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Thanks. The pattern for the flowers was quite easy, I picked it up from someone here on the message board.
    Each flower used Four 5" squares made into snowballs. cream for 3 corners and yellow for the flower center.
