Iron Quilter Challenge


We were impressed, wowed and awe-struck by the Iron Quilter Challenge submissions! We had a wonderful turnout and appreciate everyone who participated in this process.

We hope that you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about color theory and technique, and learned to work outside of your comfort zone for this challenge.

Check out the photos below along with the names of the makers! Winners of the challenge are listed after the photos, however I invite you to pick your winners! What do you feel is the best use of the color wheel? Which project would you like to steal?

Erin made this adorable Flower Pinwheel quilt! What a lovely addition to your spring and summer d├ęcor.

Carrye used a very creative technique to create her challenge project. She created a reusable bag using a photo fused to the bag. This was a great way to make something useful but also challenge her creativity.

Allie made this sweet mini using modern fabrics. How adorable!

Amy made this sweet snail quilt! Simple and sweet!

Christy made this comfy purple pillow. The pillow case showed great instincts with design and color placement, and the pillow was so comfy and soft!

Yo made this gorgeous mini giving South Western vibes!

Christine went outside of her comfort zone to create this bag. She shopped Fabric Shack for just the right fabrics!

Dorothy used paper piecing to create this quilt for granddaughter Olivia. It took 3 hours to rip papers!

Carol made an awesome “Fab Pholio” to make transporting projects and blocks easier. It is her own design and used a gorgeous color palette.

Can you believe this is Natalie’s 1 st quilt? Her use of color, simple but aesthetically pleasing design and quilting made this quilt stand out.

·       Best Use of the Color Wheel went to Amy!

·       Project I’d most like to Steal went to Christy!
