Which is Your Favorite?

These are the challenge quilts at our local show. We each had to draw a color crayon from a bag, and then make a small quilt using mostly that color. I was amazed and impressed with all the creative quilts people made. I personally have not yet voted, because I am having a hard time deciding. So I'm curious... which would YOU vote for?



3 and 6

they are all so wonderful -- what a hard choice to be faced with.... IF I were to pick one, I'd vote for #1 as I love the applique interaction with the peiced background -- how it peeks through in the slits, and how the flowers are completed by it on the edges.... :-)

Brenda said...

I'm for #1 too, but they're all fun.

I love yours, but I think that I would vote for the first one (the blue and orange one).

I'm about to make my crayon challenge quilt for my guild. We were only allowed to use 3 fabrics for ours: the two crayons we chose plus one more fabric. I chose sepia and cerulean blue. Ugh. I think I'm doing a Ricky Tims Convergence Quilt.

Jeanne said...

My favorites are 1, 4, 9 and 10!

Torina said...

I am going to pick the one that is most "my style" and that is #4. I love them all, though. Amazing what y'all can come up with, with only a crayon for inspiration.

like #1, 7 and the last one. But most of them are beautiful!

BrendaLou said...

Well, it's hard...1, 4 & 19 (only because I love elephants!....elephants & giraffes are my fav animals)

Twisted Quilts said...

What an incredibly hard choice. I think #1 and #4 are the most creative. I love #4 because it is so different.

Unknown said...

1, 9, or 18... Seeing them in person made it even harder!

KQ Sue said...

Definitely #1 it is so vibrant!

Marj said...

I would vote #1,7,14, although they are all very beautiful. Our guild did our color challenge using paint chips from the home store. I love seeing all the different interpertations of the rules.

Leah Spencer said...

#4 or #10.

I had never seen a challenge using crayons. And it's fun to see the crayon attached to the quilt so you know what they worked with.

I like #1 best.
#15 is cool, too, as well as #8.

5, 9, and 13 . . . but I'm rather fond of the skeleton doggie.

I think #4. It makes me think of shafts of light.
