2023 OCQG Challenge

This year's July Challenge is to use OCQG's 2023 Color of the Year--Digital Lavender 134-67-16. The color is associated with Serenity, Balance, and Healing. Digital lavender bridges the natural and digital worlds, bringing balance to a world in chaos.

Guidelines for Challenge Entries: 

1-  Your fabric project must include 10% or more of OCQG's Color of the Year. This can be from a solid Digital Lavender fabric, or can be from Digital Lavender within various prints.  

2-  Your project can be anything made of fabric...for example, clothing, accessories, quilts, wall hangings, runners, napkins, pillows, bags, etc. It's your call, because this is YOUR Challenge to make something using Digital Lavender. The Challenge may be either an individual or group effort.


3-  Items must be finished with a label indicating:

      - Maker's name

      - If a quilt - include both piecer and quilter's names

      - Designer's name - if other than maker

      - The words: "OCQG's 2023 Color of the Year Challenge - Digital Lavender"


All of the 2023 Digital Lavender Challenge entries will be viewed at our July 2023 meeting, and all will be recognized in a new way. We hope that both the latitude and the personal challenge appeal to you!
