YELLOW – 12 by 12 Challenge
Colour 12 by 12 Challenge – YELLOW
Aotearoa Quilters YELLOW 12 x 12. The latest Aotearoa Quilters colour challenge is YELLOW The idea is to complete a 12 inch X 12 inch square quilt where the colour is predominantly YELLOW. You can use any technique, and as for our previous colour challenges, RED, BLUE, & PURPLE, GREEN entries have included a wide range of ideas, styles and techniques.
These quilts are quick and easy to make so encourage everyone to enter! This challenge is open to Aotearoa Quilters’ members, and non-members. The ideas are endless, think deep golds through to pale lemon …sunshine, daffodils, gold, autumn leaves,egg yolks, lemons and bees….that yellow fabric you have been saving for something special… you will have many ideas. Feel free to share your thoughts and inspirations in the comments section below.
