Creative Play Challenge No. 1 – Nature/Organic

This year, I’ve decided to challenge myself to a bi-monthly (6x a year) creative adventure. I’ll be sharing more details in my newsletter and on my blog, but here’s the gist of my self-imposed constraints for my first personal creativity challenge:

My first prompt will be “icon/symbolize” (noun/verb format for flexibility).

The piece should be approximately 12″ square.

Limited to 6 colors, including background.

“Deadline” of Friday, February 24, 2023.

My Mini Quilt Design Process

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing my creative process behind the making of a mini quilt for Curated Quilts’ Paper Pieced Mini Quilts Challenge. 

Curated Quilts frequently hosts mini quilt challenges for inclusion in their quarterly journal. (Link to the original call for submissions and to the Issue 22 of the CQ Journal.)

The final piece was to be a square quilt, 10″ x 10″ up to 16″ x 16″, made in the inspirational color palette (shown below). A theme of SYMMETRY was also provided.
