Spring has finally arrived and the cherry trees are in bloom so we invite you to celebrate by making a project inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year - Greenery. In the words of Pantone Color Institute Executive Director, "satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose."
Feel free to make anything you'd like inspired by Greenery and don't fret about which green you think represents it best. We're going to be doing quarterly challenges this year so you'll have until June to work on this project. If we get a good response from this challenge, there is a possibility that quilts created will be eligible for inclusion in future quilt shows.
Speaking of quilt shows, we had a great response from the Modern Makers, Modern Quilt Show and need to start thinking of ways to put cohesive themes together for future shows. The Greenery challenge and future challenges are ways to help develop our skills as individual quilters while working on a larger body of work as a guild. As always, it is up to the quilter to submit something for a show but we hope that challenges will help get everyone's creative juices flowing.
Here are a few images from the show and our DCMQG reception on March 1st.
