|Lumberyard Challenge Color Stripes|
More 4 patch fun. You have to look closely but this quilt is also made with 4 patches. 4 patches are so forgiving. The only tricky part was making sure I got the TOT colors in the right place. The design wall was a lifesaver on this one. I made this quilt as part of a challenge for the 2014 AZ retreat and it won first place! Of course everyone knew which quilt was mine because I am the official queen of novelties. The colors are so bright and cheerful and the pattern was very easy. No idea where this idea came from, I think I was thinking of some other way to use tone on tones with the novelties and the rules of the challenge were it had to use 4x4 and 2x2 pieces.

Phew, lots of pictures in this post. I've put sticky notes in my scrap book to mark which quilts I've not included on the blog yet and today a bunch can come off. Hope you enjoyed. Now you know why I got so excited about finding 3 new orange fabrics. Still need to find some purples and oranges that don't have a Halloween theme. The hunt is on.
