The Philly Modern Quilt Guild had another challenge! For "Project Solids", we each received 4 fat quarters of Kona Cottons. The colors were Snow, Ruby, Holly and Chocolate. The rules were that we could can add up to 1 yard total of additional fabric. This means we could add 1, 2, 3 or however many other fabrics we'd like as long as we didn't go over 1 total yard. Binding and backing are not included as part of the 1 yard.
I had a bunch of holiday fabric that I got last year, but never used. So I thought I would try to do this challenge without buying any new fabric. I wanted to try to Starry Forest Christmas Tree Skirt by Tall Grass Prairie Studio.
