quilt challenge

this is a art painting,that my friend linda over at eat, sleep, quilt blog has asked me to do a quilt challenge with her.  this is the painting that we are going to use.  she is doing the same challenge with a group of quilter's on another blog.  so check out her blog for more details about the challenge.  so i said ok.  the challenge is to take an art painting and make a quilt using only SOLID COLORS.  REPEAT SOLID COLORS. i am thinking ok this is easy. you can change the art work to your interpretation of the art work. but it must be solid colors.  my problem is that i only have in my solid stash fabric, is black, red, and a small piece of white.and two or three brown tones, what the heck can a sistah do with that.  we are not suppose to buy any fabric, but use what you have.  my stash color is ugly, you hear me, ugly.  so i am going to take myself to a quilt shop and buy myself some solid fabric.  now if this challenge was about using prints, african fabric, batiks anything but solids, i would not have to go to a quilt shop. solid fabric is not really my thing.  now if it is batik, solid black, know problem.  hey, a sistah like me will buy the whole bulk of michael miller black.  black is my favorite choice of fabric.  so just to let you know there will be some black in this piece.  and the challenge is due the first of august.  i will post how it is coming along until the first of august when i will give it to linda.

stitches for now

I wouldn't go to the quilt shop. (I am frugal) I'd go to Joann's for fat quarters or a thrift store and look for old clothes in solids or fabric if they have it.
You will have fun with this!!!

Why not paint some of the fabric you have any color you want it to be.
