Each month, when the new color is posted, a link box will be added for the previous month’s project.
The info about the challenge is shown below:
The 2012 Color Challenge is so exciting. I can hardly wait to get started.
For the Color Challenge, 2012 Patchwork Times is teaming up with Vicki Welsh at Field Trips in Fiber for an exciting “push your limits” color challenge. Vicki creates gorgeous hand dyed fabrics and for several years, she has used a photo as her inspiration to create color palettes. If you aren’t familiar with her palette creations, please spend some time on her blog and you will find lots of color palettes inspired by photos.
For our color challenge in 2012, each month we are going to use a palette created by Vicki. Some of the palettes will have coordinating fabrics available for purchase but you are not required to use them. You may use one or all of the colors in the palette. Let it be a jumping off point for your own creativity. You may create a small art piece (postcard, wall hanging), a bag, a quilt of any size — most anything you want just so it’s finished by the end of the month, photographed and a link to your photo is added to the link box.
A winner each month will be chosen and that winner will receive a fat quarter pack of hand dyed fabric of your choice from Vicki’s shop.
On January 1, 2012, both here and on Vicki’s blog, the photo of the January challenge palette will be posted. Be thinking about projects you can start and finish in one month and be ready to push your limits as far as using colors together that you may not have used together before. The color palette challenge is a great way to extend your personal color library. Some of the palettes will not be to your liking. We hope you will work with them anyway, even in a small project, to expand your horizons. Concurrent with the Color Palette Challenge, Vicki will be running a series of color theory articles on her blog throughout the year. Be sure to follow her blog so you don’t miss these articles. It will be like a free class in color theory.
