Playing with Crayons

Terri's quilt label included a brief description of the challenge itself. It reads:

 

Four designers wanted to play...

to create without rules...

to challenge ourselves...

to inspire us...

to change us...

but mostly because

we wanted to have FUN

We had an idea...

We went with it...

this is 1 of 4 quilts that became of it.
