Fairholme Quilters Exhibition 2012 (5): Paint Chip Challenge

Fifth in a series of posts in which we will share the quilts from our biennial exhibition, held in April 2012.  Click on the images for a larger view. 

Paint Chip Challenge

Each quilter was given a paint chip, with three shades of a single colour (light, medium and dark values) in a brown paper bag,

The challenge was make a quilt up to 36" x 36" (not necessarily square), using fabrics in the three colours only, with the addition of only black, white and/or cream.

Any technique could be used, and the work had to be quilted and bound.
