Rachel, at Stitched in Color, has teamed up with Gotham Quilts to host a quilt design challenge on Instagram called the 30 Days of Quilt Design Challenge. The challenge is to do some quilt designing for 30 days, obviously, but what I love about it is that it doesn't have to be 30 consecutive days. It's hard to do anything for 30 days straight, so it's nice to have the option to skip a few days here and there without feeling like I'm falling behind.
The challenge goes until October 31st so there's still plenty of time if you want to join in. You can read all about it in Rachel's introduction post.
So far I'm up to 14 days of designs and it has been a lot of fun! Here is a sample of my designs so far.
Apparently I forgot to colour the borders on this first one :) I like the asymmetrical setting, and I'd probably not bother to piece those parts on the sides that are outlined but not coloured. I think I'd quilt those lines to create ghost shapes.
Colouring it on the computer was much
easier if I just used one shade for each section, but I definitely
envision it being done scrappy. The more fabrics, the better!
There are many, many beautiful quilts being designed by others participating in the challenge, so if you're on IG I definitely recommend you check out the hashtag #30daysofquiltdesign.
