Raffle Quilt Colour Palette :: Vote NOW!!!

Hi there. How’s your creativity this month? What have you been working on? Who else is looking forward to show and tell next week? Don’t forget the change of venue, time and day: we will be at Civic Library, 7:30pm, Thursday 23 May. More details about access will be posted next week.

At our last meeting, we spent quite a bit of time discussing the options for our Guild raffle quilt. We are going to raffle a quilt with the theme “Centenary of Canberra” during the month that Floriade is on. The funds raised from the raffle will assist the Guild to bring in a guest teacher.

Nicole and Crystal volunteered to work together on the design to be ready for our next meeting.

Those present at the meeting decided:

  • to make the colour scheme for the quilt based on Floriade;
  • that members who wanted to contribute would bring some scrap fabrics along to the next meeting;
  • those scraps will be divided between those wanting to make blocks in the following month, ready to be returned to the June meeting.

A colour palette based on Floriade can be interpreted in oh so many ways however, in order to get started, we need to decide which colours we will use. A few pictures from Floriade have been loaded into Kuler and here we have four palettes:

Floriade-1
Floriade Palette 1
Floriade-2
Floriade Palette 2
Floriade-3
Floriade Palette 3
Floriade-4
Floriade Palette 4

If you would like to vote on simply complete the survey below. Responses will be taken until midday Sunday 19 May 2013.

Make a note of the order of your preferences and then click here to take survey.

The results will be published here on Monday with details about the fabric requirements.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute.

  1. Hi there,

    I was interested in maybe coming along to your next meeting – is anyone welcome? I’m a bit of a novice quilter but like to do more modern designs so it would be nice to meet like minded crafters. Should I bring anything along? I don’t really have a current project although this group may be a bit of a catalyst to get into action!

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers, Elisabeth

  2. I’m devs I can’t make it on Wednesday night. Have a lovely evening, quilters.
    I’m definitely keen to do a block on the Floriade quilt – can someone put one down for me? I’ll get fabric for it and bring it along for July’s meeting. xx
