Pin Drop Challenge – Winners Announced!
by Christine | Posted in: Congratulations Contests
Have you seen the awesome entries submitted to the Pin Drop challenge?! (See them in the original post here.) Thanks to everyone for participating!
Riley Blake Designs couldn’t narrow it to just one, so they chose THREE winners! That means three lucky designers will receive a bundle of the Pin Drop fabrics – YAY!! Congratulations to the following people…
“My entry is called “Prismatic Pin Drop.” I was struck by how the prints in this collection, especially on the darker colors, look a bit like stars in the night sky, so I was inspired to do a star theme. Also, the thin points of these stars are a little like pins! There is no curved piecing in this pattern; the illusion of curves comes from the half square triangles meeting the triangle in a square blocks. The use of a pieced border allows the design to continue out to the edge of the quilt. To piece this quilt, you’d need to be able to sew four patch blocks, nine patch blocks, half square triangles, triangles in squares, and simple rectangles/strips.”
“The colors in this palette reminded me of Rainbow Row in Charleston, SC. It was fun to design a basic block and then tweak it to add variety.”
“With all the white I wanted to have block or idea that would show case the fabrics. I made my own block 8″ and added the color and lay out. It was not as easy as I thought it would be.I always learn and love to play with the fabric of the month.”
Kim, Claire, and Linda will receive fat quarters of the Pin Drop collection from Riley Blake!
Again, you can see all the fabulous entries in the original blog post. Thanks again to all participants and congrats to the winners!!
