The Hand Quilt Along and the Paint Chip Challenge

I Have nothing……ugh……

Way too many things going on for me. Last week I started the “new” job.  My mind was not on quilting.  It was on getting up at 6:00am and getting where I belonged.  Then there was the total exhausting from trying to learn how things worked there.  Came home, ate dinner , went bed, repeat.

So I apologize to all the ladies of the quilt along, I will get my act together.and hope to have something soon.  Please visit all these wonderful ladies;

The Paint Chip Challenge.

This is an event that my guild is putting on.  I paid $5.00 to draw a bag that contained a paint chip.  You must use the colors on the card you draw, all of them.  You can add a fourth color not on the card if you choose.  The project is due at the Christmas meeting where the top three divide all the money collected.  So, I had to get to work right away, because I have issues with deadlines, or at least quilting deadlines.  My colors aren’t bad, 20190328_132013but I struggled with what to do.  I felt I needed to do something simple in order to get it completed in time.  So, I chose this simple pattern from “Block” magazine.

Well, it is simple.  In my head, I thought I ould make it look good.  I uses my 4th color (the one I got to choose) as a print.

The print is paired with the royal blue, and light blue is the green columns.  I plan to use the tan as the binding.watermark_2019-03-28-13-18-50.jpg

I hate it!
The only thing that might save it is if I manage to do some amazing quilting.  Hahaha.  That is funny.  I will finish it, but I have little hope that I will tolerate it.
Happy Sewing
