2019 DMAQG President’s Challenge
Here is the 2019 Presidents Challenge for the Des Moines Area Quilters Guild (DMAQG)
It’s called – “Complementary Color Challenge”
Here’s how it works.
Choose your favorite color then chose its complement. You can only use these 2 colors.
Then the challenge is to use its proportions in relation to light and dark for each color in your quilt.
Purple = 3/4 and its complement Yellow = 1/4
Blue = 2/3 and its complement Orange = 1/3
Red = 1/2 and its complement Green = 1/2
Each proportion = 1 in relation to its light and dark color proportions in our challenge.
(You may use different purples or yellows or prints but it’s best to keep them in the same warm or cool tones)
You can use a red/orange or a blue/green for example, just be sure to use its direct complement on the color
wheel. You can use your favorite method such as piecing, applique (machine or needle turn) or paper piecing.
You can have a background but it must be neutral OR you can have no background and use both colors for the
whole wall hanging. The size must = 32” x 32” on all four sides
