I have to admit that this year’s color, marsala, is probably my least favorite of all colors. My goal was to participate in the challenge and use fabric close to the paint swatch suggestions. Looing at my quilt, I’m happy that I paired it with Kona’s Sky Blue. The design straight from Terry Atkinson’s book, Graphic Mix. It finishes at 58″ x 73″ and is quilted with my “seer sucker” quilting (three tight straight lines, space, three tight straight lines, etc.) using a dusty rose thread.

The poka dot on the top left and the text on the bottom right are the two fabrics I purchased to match and everything else is from my stash. I used an Anna Maria Horner fabric for the back and the binding is a Tula Pink cut on the bias. Sorry gals, who would have known your newer lines of fabric match so perfect!!??

Late last month, we headed to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival for a photo shoot. There was a mass of humanity there.
My daughter notices things matching, and spotted the wooden shoe in the exact Pantone Marsala color. No idea who the people are in the background, but since kids were waiting to get on the shoe, we had to snap a photo quick.
I’m naming the quilt, “Walter’s Wiggles” after a trail in Zion National Park on the way up to Angel’s Landing.
Here is our son, Andrew hiking it when he had just turned seven years old. No idea where the other two kids are.
Thank you Play Crafts and On the Windy Side for this challenge, all the vendors supplying prizes and each quiltmaker who accepted the challenge!
