Judy Laquidara is having a monochromatic challenge in 2011. January’s challenge color was yellow, and I did participate in that one. (The quilt below did get finished and given away, but I like this unfinished picture better. It must be the beach.) And in case you’re wondering, the pattern is Terry Atkinson’s Urban Cabin.
The next two months, I skipped…mostly because I was away from my stash and didn’t want to buy more fabric. Then I skipped April because it was orange, and I didn’t have much orange fabric to work with.
Judy announced that the color for May is RED! Woo-hoo!!!
I bought some hand-dyed fabrics from Vicki Welsh two or three months ago in shades of red (click HERE for a link to her ETSY shop, and try not to drool on your keyboard). I absolutely love this colorway, and I’ve been saving it hoping red would be one of Judy L’s color challenges.
I’ve not settled for sure on a pattern yet, but it will be something easy and lap sized. And maybe with black for extra *pop*. And definitely for me!
To really get into the mood for a quilt in shades of red, here are a couple of totally NQR pictures I took yesterday:
