A bunch of Robert Kaufman Kona Solids charm packs in the dark colourway made their way to us last meeting. I haven't yet seen any guilds use the darks - most seem to have chosen the bright or dusty palettes - and so I agree with Kaelin (our Prez) who said she thinks our quilts are going to be fabulously different as a result.
Isn't this a gorgeous set of colours?
Whereas other guilds have specified guidelines like No Prints Allowed, our guild chose to leave the challenge pretty open. The only requirement of the VMQG challenge is that the fabrics in the charm pack should be the focus of the quilt.
My initial thoughts were a stacked coin-style quilt (like this or this) because charms tend to lend themselves to being put in stacks. Then an idea came to me. I won't tell you exactly what it is (yet), but I will give you the following three cryptic hints:
- Kona Medium Grey;
- Helen Keller;
- I will be using each and every charm in the design.
