Tonight, at the Winona Area Quilter’s Guild meeting (7:00 PM CDT, at Winona County History Center, Johnson Street, Winona, MN), we are displaying our items for this year’s challenge, Black and White and Crayon All Over.
Here were the rules:
- All participants drew a crayon from a paper bag. The color of the crayon and the participant’s name were recorded.
- The challenge entry item can be made of black and white prints, or black fabrics, plus white fabrics, plus the crayon color. The color of the crayon is not the wrapper color – it is the color of the crayon wax when colored on paper.
- The challenge entry item can be a quilt, a wall hanging, a bag, purse, etc.
- The challenge entry item must be quilted, and it must be completely finished.
- Embellishments are allowed within the color guidelines.
- The original crayon must be attached to the challenge entry, in a plastic bag attached to the item with a safety pin on challenge night for judging.
Here’s my entry, for those who won’t be at the guild meeting:
The quilting is not very visible on this, since it is along the lines of the crossword grid, in variegated blue thread. (Click on the image to see a larger version)
I’ve found the original rules sheet, on which I colored with my blue crayon. Now I get to spend the rest of the day looking for the crayon itself! Aaagh. I know it was a Crayola, and I know the shade on the label was “blue”.
*POST -MEETING UPDATE*
The challenge entries were great this year (there were about 20 entries), and they are going to be on display at the new and improved Rather Bee Quilting in Lake City, MN very shortly!
