Cheetos Challenge #1

Last year we were at our annual January quilt retreat.
The weather was great, the company quite amusing, the food was nutritious...

And pretty soon all we could talk about was Cheetos.

Somebody decided to get up, get a little exercise, go to town and get some Cheetos.
And maybe a little wine. 

Then we decided to do a Cheetos Round Robin, due last month.
The rules were few. 
  • Do a center inspired by your favorite curiously orange snack food.
  • Pass it to the next in alphabetic order three times. 
  • Try to loosen up.
Some call this an Add-A-Border, others a Round Robin.

Here are the centers:

Annette
Some took the challenge more seriously than others...

Guin
Note her comment: Cheetos 8 times.

And went for that curiously orange color...

Janet

Carmel
Cheetos colored motorcycle print

While others looked for meaning with a little digital printing.

Helen

Barbara

Others were quite literal.

Pam


Mata

Mata went for the whole package, so to speak.
This is a crunchy plastic bag framed by orange fabric.
More tomorrow.

I'm new to your blog... Originally I got the impression that you were very "straight laced". Now I see you have a very playful side! Lol. How fun, a Cheetos Challenge...historic in it's own way!
Thanks for sharing - please show the completed quilts! I'm sure we'd all love to see where these go.
