Paintchip Challenge

_DSC6391_edited We’ve sweated over color matching, design, and getting everything finished but now we’re done and so excited to see the collected result. Drygoods Design is exhibiting the quilts through the month of June. Thank you, Keli!


We started the challenge with one of four randomly assigned paintchips and a few lucky members got a yellow accent to include. As long as the finished quilt was 18 inches x 18 inches, we could create any design we wanted as long as we stayed with the colors on our paintchip. The challenge was not as easy as it sounds, especially for Team Gray. If you want to see some works in progress pictures, check #seamqgpaintchipchallenge on Instagram.

The exhibit started with an opening night reception during June’s Pioneer Square’s First Thursday Art Walk. It was a beautiful evening with lots of people coming through Drygoods Design so we could share our quilts with them. The photographer was too busy chatting (you know how she is) to get a photo of everyone or all the quilts but has these to share –

  1. The 9 quilts on the table top should have gone up on the wall regardless of the odd number. They looked very different yesterday. Not very respectful of these nine peeps!

  2. The guild is thankful for Dry Goods Design creating a showcase of our Guild’s work. A lot of time and effort went into making this show well thought out and installed on such a grand scale. We’re happy to have been invited to participate in what was a good (technical and visual) challenge! We may never look at a HomeDepot’s paint department display the same….
