Recently at Fat Quarter Shop, we’ve been seeing tons of color….in the Art Gallery Fabric Color Master boxes that is! Art Gallery has come out with gorgeous, monochromatic collections featuring 10 Fat Quarter or Half Yard precuts! Every box is unique and includes randomly selected fat quarter cuts from a mix of Art Gallery collections in a printed designer box.
We are sew in love with this collection that we have decided to do a CONTEST! We want to see your creativity with the Art Gallery Color Masters and would like you to make a project featuring one of the color masters (can be half yard or fat quarter). The project can be anything you’d like: quilt, tablerunner, bag or anything else you come up with! We are also providing the Plenum Quilt Pattern that Art Gallery made especially for the Color Master, which you are welcome to use as a part of or as your project.

Enter me into contest for color master
Hi Jamie! We are accepting entries via photos uploaded to the link in the post.
One thing for sure, there will be some gorgeous makes!!! I love these boxes!!!
International post disadantages those of us outside the US who like to participate
Hi Mary! We are not requiring a project to be mailed to us, just photos. If you meant something else, please let me know!
For a project do I need to use all fabrics from a color scheme of the color master box?Also, I have a few knit fabrics, can I use those too or it’s just for quilting fabrics?
Hi Anna, you can use fabrics other than what is in the box. We just ask the fabrics primarily be from the Color Master box, but we don’t want to limit your creativity!
Can we use just ONE color or more than one?
Yes, you can certainly use more than one!
and one more question: can project have any other AGF fabric (for example, for background) or JUST fabrics from Color Master group?
You can add other fabrics to your project beyond the Color Master box!
Can I enter just a fully pieced quilt top? I don’t think it will be quilted by the deadline.
Hi Amanda, yes that will be fine!
So glad to see that deadline was extended – I wanted to do it but was late, so now I just purchased few things and will wait eagerly for it to come, so I can make something for this contest – yay! Thank you!
I’m so disappointed to be hearing of this for the first time at the end of the day on March 5; there simply isn’t time to order and receive the fabric, make, quilt, and bind this in 8 days!
That’s what I thought as well, Cynthia, but I’m guessing you and I didn’t catch the first email.
