After one has shared the picture (just to see where the colors come from), everyone takes a bag with all the chosen colors. Each is to find fabric that depicts the chosen colors and create a work of art with the colors. We decided this will be a two month challenge and we started our first one two months ago. The art work can be any size, any shape, the only stipulation is you must use all the colors plus black and white; you can use as much or as little of each color as you wish.

|One of our group doesn't use fabric; she went to the paint store and got more of the same chips I had given her and created a journal page for the CC Challenge.|
|An absent member emailed hers to me so I could show it to the group!|
And my second completed challenge was for the "Art Quilters Around the World" blog. We also do challenges every two months with the topic coming from one of the members at a time! This challenge was to use the phrase "The Road Less Traveled"..please go to the link to see all the gorgeous interpretation of this theme! I am always amazed how each artist can get such different take on the same theme!
By going to the link, you can also read about how each came to their particular finished project. By unanimous decision, the quilts are always 11.5 x 16.5 in size...but that is about the only restriction in making them.
