Linky Party

Pantone Quilt Challenge

I’m super excited to have been asked to be a judge for the Pantone Quilt Challenge this year. The Pantone Quilt Challenge is hosted by Sarah Ruiz and Elizabeth Ray, and I’m honored to be judging with Libs Elliott and Brandy Maslowski.

The 2024 challenge features the 2024 Pantone color of the year, Peach Fuzz.  For information on how to participate (including close color matches in multiple fabric lines), check out the general information, categories, and rules here.

Note there are 4 different categories you can submit to this year: throw & larger, mini/wall, just the top, and for exhibit only. The linkup will be open for 1 week: April 22-29. Last year, many of the quilts made during the Pantone Quilt Challenge were accepted and shown at QuiltCon this year. So, what do you think, will you join in the challenge this year?

    Yes, I am going to join in again this year. Looking forward to seeing all of the projects.

  2. What fun to be a judge for this event! I think time won’t allow it but you never know if something becomes compelling – it really isn’t a favorite color of mine but that does make it even more of a challenge.

    Congrats on being selected as a judge. I think I’m done with quilts that have a deadline for a bit. I’m ready to drop back and finish up some of what I’ve started earlier.

    Yep, I’m joining in. Probably something small-ish, but we’ll see. How fun that you were asked to be a judge!

    I used Cotton Couture Creamsicle in some of my units along with Bella Solids (Moda) – Cantaloupe the ones that are not a perfect match are still okay if they are on the list. Is that correct?

    1. There really is no fabric that is a perfect match for the Pantone color in any year, so it’s always just something that you do your best with what you can find or have in your stash. There is no requirement for the quilts to only use what is listed – those are just suggestions and starting points for consideration.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
