Yesterday we announced the winners of the Tangerine Tango Quilt Challenge here on Ali's blog, A Squared W. I was so impressed by all the entries we got to our fun little challenge and loved seeing all the different interpretations of using the color Tangerine in quilting.
I loved hearing from our judges about what they liked about the different quilts, and how hard it was to narrow it down to their top 3 choices. Here's what a few of them had to say about the challenge:
Jeni, from In Color Order: "Tangerine can be a difficult color to work with, it's so incredibly bright and often overpowering. I was impressed by how well everyone incorporated it into their projects! Despite the challenge's color constraints, there was so much variety in design, so many unique quilts! I hope you all enjoyed sewing with tangerine, I know I enjoyed watching your progress!"
Kate, from Kate Spain Design: "I've so enjoyed checking out the works-in-progress and seeing minis and quilts take shape. Hats off to you for thinking up such a wonderful, creative challenge and for inspiring and encouraging people to embrace this beautiful, energized color!"
Here's the run down of the 3 winning quilts from the full-sized category:
