In the chapter that I belong to, we were given a challenge to make a small quilt based off the color of a crayon.... So I went to my LQS and found fabric that matches my crayon pretty closely...but now what. What to do with it?? Well this is what I came up with. Instead of cutting it up and trying to come up with designs.. I did a wholecloth.
Thank you for taking a look.

The entire quilt. This picture is more true to the color. It's a slate blue.

That is absolutely gorgeous. Was it a pattern or did you make it up. You did a beautiful job.

No it wasn't a pattern but it is several patterns the I started playing with yesterday and finally liked how they went together. Thank you for your kind words.

Great job! I love your quilting. I adore wholecloths, and have done several myself, so am really partial to these lovely quilts. I must say I really admire your quilting pattern - you did a beautiful job of it! I'd be very proud of this quilt :)
