President's Challenge for 2016- Modern Color

Have you looked in your stash and said, “I must really like color X?”

Well, have I got the challenge for you! For the 2017 Winter Quilt Show in January, it would be awesome to show what you can do with color. This will be the fourth year OKCMQG will be showing a Modern collection of quilts at the WQS—and I would like to issue a challenge. It is pretty simple: make a quilt using your favorite color.

Here are the guidelines.

Size Whatever you want...well, at the very least a mini (24” x 24”) and feel free to make it larger (remember—we HAVE SPACE just for you)

Color Must be at least 75% of one color family and 25% other color(s), or ALL one color family.



Style Modern, with identifiable modern elements

Due October 10 Meeting - This is a 6-month challenge

That’s it. Need inspiration? Check out our Pinterest Board- “Color Quilts” 

Our goal is to fill up our WQS space with all of your Modern Color challenge pieces* so the greater the participation, the bolder the impact!

Want to see your entry in print? Submit a high-res photo of your challenge piece and the Guild will vote (in October) for the image to represent our “Modern Color” display that’s published in the WQS program!

-Shirlene, OKCMQG President

*Along with Modern Color challenge pieces, new quilts that were not displayed in the 2016 WQS will be accepted for 2017 WQS.
