Aotearoa Quilters Lime challenge

If I write it here, I have to do it, right?  


Aotearoa Quilters have another colour challenge on at the moment.  This time it's Lime, and it's one of my favourite colours.  

Whenever I see the colour challenge quilts displayed together, I always wish that I'd entered.  So this time I'm going to make it happen.  

I've only entered twice before - the silver challenge for the 25th anniversary (where the shape was a hexagon), and the yellow challenge.





Yellow in 2016

Green in 2015


Orange in 2017

Pink in 2019 - Weekend Drive by Shirley Sparks

These gorgeous pictorial quilts are well outside my comfort zone, but I'll just do my thing and make something lime.  I'm not aiming to win a prize, just to have my little quilt up on a wall of lime quilts.  The dimensions this time are 12" x 16" so that will be different.  The conditions of entry are here. 

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  What have you been up to this week?  Feel free to share a recent blog post below.

All of those challenge quilts make a stunning display. Have fun with lime. I find lime a challenging color to work with but kind of like it combined with gray every once in awhile.

I love lime - it's a great neutral and adds a real kick when working with lots of greens. I don't plan to enter but I might just play with the 12" x 16" mini idea myself. Looking forward to seeing what you do!

Hi Wendy, good luck with your lime quilt! A wall of quilts of the same colour looks pretty darn lovely! Take care.

I've never had an opportunity to participate in a color challenge, but this sure looks like fun! I love lime, and it's nice that you already have those pieces in your stash. No doubt, making this is gonna be fun!
