We all received a paint sample, the colour of which we had to match to fabric and use a recognisable amount of this fabric in the quilt. The name of the paint sample became the name and subject matter of our quilt.
Size was 24 inches high by 16 inches wide - portrait orientation and had to have three layers with binding.
Lesley Christiansen judged our challenge and she is a quilter, tutor and judge with many years experience in the quilting retail world.
