January Monochromatic Challenge

 

I can’t believe it, this doesn’t actually start until tomorrow but I was in a sewing mood very early this morning.  All of the yellows came from my scrap bin.  These little “modern” art quilts are harder to sew than I thought!  It was so easy to get wonky piecing the strips but I like how it turned out (and I really don’t like yellow).  I even hand quilted it (gasp, I know, my fingers look like hamburger).  This is the best binding I’ve ever done too, I really took my time & used my Fiskars bias tape maker that I’ve had for 10 yrs and have maybe used once.  Just finished hand sewing the binding down & had to grab some pics!  Thank you Judy for a fun challenge!

I can’t wait for my new camera to arrive next week, these pics are awful.  Thanks for looking!

Wow -- that was quick! I still have ten ideas rolling around in my head so it'll be awhile before I pare them down to just one! Very charming runner!

I think yellow is just a hard color to photograph - certainly inside. Maybe we all should repost our quilt pics in the spring. :) Nice job on the table runner.

I love your little modern quilt. I think some people think that modern is easier, but I still like to plan a bit so that way I don't have to lop bits off with the rotary cutter that don't fit.

So cute! I will have to check back tomorrow to see if you finished the Violet -- it took me all month to finish mine, I tend to play too much.

I love art quilts, that was really quick, and it looks great despite the dark photos. Well done.
