One of my favorite quilt shops, Red Rooster Quilts, is hosting a Customer Challenge Contest using the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year…Living Coral.
The challenge is to use one fat quarter of Living Coral and one other fabric to make a Mini Quilt that is 20 inches square or less. Needless to say, challenge accepted!
I decided to pick my fabrics first and then work on a design. I’ve been interviewing fabrics from my stash and definitely need some advice.
A. Is this plaid too dark?
B. Are these polka dots too big for a mini quilt?
C. This might make a modern mini, but what about this pattern…too busy?
D. Who can resist a paw print? Go or No Go?
E. This makes things bright!
F. Nautical meets living coral…hmmm
G. These mini dots are cute, but what about the color?
H. Color is nice, but is this print too large?
I. This is a pretty floral print, is it too busy for a 2 fabric mini?
J. This batik is interesting, I’ve always liked it.
K. This print might be too big for a mini…what do you think?
What combinations do you like?
What other colors work well with Living Coral?
