Color It In - Project Quilting Season 10, Challenge 3

This is the third challenge of Season 10 of
Project Quilting.

I'm excited to join in this challenge, "Bigger Than a Breadbox"

My entry:

Color It In


Kim announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.

The rules:

  1. Your project must have one measurement (length, width, or height) larger than 16″, and another measurement larger than 8″. 
  2. Projects need to be created during the week of the challenge (started on or after February 3, finished by February 10).
  3. Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these three requirements: include patchwork, include appliqué, have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.
  4. Incomplete or unfinished does not qualify. Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline.
  5. Link up by Sunday, February 10 at noon CST


This challenge came the same weekend that I was able to open the boxes I received 
I am so excited to be an
 Island Batik Ambassador for 2019
One of the many benefits of being an Ambassador for Island Batik this year
is the gift of an 
Accuquilt - Ready Set Go! Ultimate Fabric Cutting System.
This challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to figure out the cutting system,
so I used a free pattern from the Pattern & Idea Book from the GO! Qube 8" Block,
Pencil Me In Wall Hanging

Instead of using my new Island Batik fabrics, I thought I should start out with some scraps from
my stash to figure this whole new world out.

As I was cutting, I found out, 
the system is really easy to use and my worry about fabric was silly.
But, this challenge gave me a chance to try out my new toy. 
I'm calling my new quilt, Color It In.
I used Kona Solids for the pencils and border and white stash scraps for the background.
The pencil tan color is Moda Grunge

Seems like we are quite often on the same page...I worked on a crayon type project yesterday. I love yours! It just has such a happy feel to it. I use my Accuquilt once in a while, but now I'll be watching you for more inspiration.

That is wonderful! I think it would be fabulous in a child's room as the focal point in decorating.

That is just beautiful! It almost looks like a printed fabric. Perfect in every way!
