Members of the Sun Bonnet Sue Quilt Club in Sequim have been challenged to make a "Quilt from the Pantry." What this means, in essence is that we must make a quilt based on the colors of a grocery store cardboard-boxed food item and we must incorporate at least one recognizable traditional block. On its face, this doesn't seem so hard; however, we have to use the exact shade and colors that are on the box. We cannot add colors, nor can we change the value. And we must turn in the box with the quilt.
So...this is what I have come up with so far:
The first would be somewhat monochromatic (its a stretch) using this Jello box and mainly the greens.
The second is softer, using the Oatmeal box, with all the colors it contains.
Okay, so I have my fabric and my boxes--the problem now becomes what block and/or blocks and what to do. If this turns out like my other challenges, it will either stay in the planning stage forever and/or get made after the due date.
Any ideas?? Anything???
