South Rim + Pantone Quilt Entry

I've watched the Pantone Quilt Challenge from the sidelines for several years now and decided this year I would participate.

The 2019 Pantone Color of the Year is Living Coral.  I even purchased the swatch from Pantone.


I don't know how many 1/4 yd cuts of coral fabric I purchased from Stash Fabrics, just looking for the right matches.  Their interactive design wall was so helpful.


I mixed many prints and solids together.  I even cut many of the prints on an angle to match the tumblers.




Quilting took longer than I expected as I tried to match the thread with each fabric which meant burying endless thread tails.




Photographing was not easy.  I found this wall of coral and took my husband as protection.  He even held the quilt for the me, which is rare.


I'm entering South Rim in the Quilt category of the 2019 Pantone Quilt Challenge.

  1. Oh my, this is just lovely, Paige! I can imagine burying those thread tails wasn't much fun, but oh so worth it! I would've never thought to look for a coral wall; glad you had hubs along, just in case!

  2. There you are! I've been missing your blogging about your wonderful creations! Both of your tumbler quilts are great examples of modern quilts. I don't know how you have the patience to match thread to all the colors. Your attention to detail even in the way you cut the fabric is always impressive.

  3. This one is fun too! I can't imagine matching all those threads as well as finding all those fabrics. You did great, and good luck in the challenge.

  4. I love this one Paige!!! I've been seeing a lot of the Pantone coral quilts popping up on IG but yours is definitely at the top. I love the color shift. It glows. And matching all those color changes was quite the challenge. Good show. I've often thought of doing the challenge and never get around to it. Maybe next year.

  5. Paige, I can't begin to tell you how much I like this quilt! First, your choice of a tumbler shape just blows my mind, for it's simplicity. And second, your color arrangement is perfection. Your arrangement of solids and prints is impressive. South Rim is just stunning for it's restraint and unity. I continue to marvel at your skills... and yearn to have your eyes and understanding of design and color. I can already imagine this one hanging at QC. Are you planning to be in Austin?

  6. P.S. Thank you for mentioning and sharing a link to Stash Fabrics! I've just spent some happy time perusing their offerings. My goodness! What a nice selection! If Stash Fabrics carried Painter's Palette Solids, they'd become my one-stop shop.

  13. This is an awesome quilt! I am voting today. The coral wall gives me a chuckle - it looks like a "(gentlemen's) topless club".

  14. So pretty. The quilting is awesome, and you buried so many thread tails. Such patience. Hoping they announce the Pantone Challenge winners soon.

  15. Paige, you made a fabulous quilt. I love it. I am sure you are very happy with it. I am glad you had a dependable quilt holder-upper and if a coral wall was the only missing ingredient then you would have painted the wall with a coral spray paint, right?
