My Entry for the Pantone Quilt Challenge

Hello everybody!
As I have blogged about in my last post,
 I am participating at the Pantone Quilt Challenge with this quilt:

This is my Entry for "just the top" named "coralstar"
"Coralstar" was inspired by the colors of the sunrise at the caribbean sea. 
In my case that was Jan Thiel Beach in beautiful Curaçao, where I visited with my husband in 2006. 
It finishes 40"x40" and I am entering it in the category "just the top". 
Really only because I am afraid that I might not finish on time! 

For my Radiant Orchid Quilt, I chose the suggested Kona Thistle, because I am in a spring mood 
and the color reminded me of that particular sunset! I know it's not as radiantly blasting out 
of the quilt like in others, that I saw in the Flickr group
but I like the softness an purity of my color selection!




I will quilt "coralstar" soon - I already have a good picture of what I wanna do 
(thinking of waves in the Aqua and pointing out the stars with a dot to dot technique, 
or maybe try out this tutorial on circle quilting).

I will keep you posted on the progress and to you, wherever you are and whatever you're working on


Happy Crafting

  1. Oooh, the soft colors are beautiful with that bold punch of teal. :) I love the design as well, all those angles give it a lot of movement. Beautiful work!
