throwdown!

it's a quilt challenge throwdown, and it's going on this month! 

here's what to do, straight from the ORBC QAL flickr group

Choose a color palette from any of the several color palette generators or websites with preselected color palettes meant for inspiration and then make a quilt that interprets that color palette. ALSO, provide a 40 - 60 word explanation as to how the quilt embodies that color palette.

if you want to browse pretty palettes, check out design seeds or colour lovers.  i found this one called flora tones, so pretty!



or make your own using a favorite picture and the chip it tool at sherwin-williams.  and then you'd have the paint names to match your room to your quilt!  :)   i personally pull out the pages of my home magazines when they have paint colors on them i like. i have a stack of them for future quilt inspiration. 



i'm going to try to join in on this one.  i have a few things to wrap up first, but i'm hoping to choose a palette and some fabrics later this week.  want to join me?  head over to the old red barn co. quiltalong flickr group and get started!
