Monday's bits

   Monday already?  I got bogged down with stuff this morning and  I have free motion class tomorrow.  I got the samples and handouts together, and bundled up the quilts to show.
   If you are a follower and lover of  Exuberant color sure to read the feature article on Wanda at  Quilt Inspiration today.  And they are showing a few of her latest quilts!  She's a huge inspiration to me, so click over and enjoy!
   Over the weekend I got a small start on the guild challenge quilt.....some 9 patch blocks and more leaves cut out and yards of bias stems.  I figure I will have the 9 patches together by the time my big machine comes home so I can start the appliqueing.

    Then yesterday Project Quilting announced the challenge theme for this week.  It's My Favorite Color.  Create a project with white and your favorite color.  In essence a two color project.  So the color pick is easy, blue it shall be.  To the scrap boxes and string bins I run!
     Here's the assortment so far.   Rather than just sticking with the dark blue and white, I want to use a variety of blue shades.  The monochromatic quilt has always been a challenge for me, as I love to use lots of color.  So I am putting a bit of a mountain in my path to stretch my ability to deal with the monochromatic side of this one.
   So next is deciding on a design.

Thanks for the heads up about the post about Wanda on Quilt Inspiration Today! I love her work and I'm glad she's getting more of the attention she deserves!

You've got some cool stuff going on too... love the blues and purples!

I, too, have a hard time doing a two color quilt. As pretty as they are, I am always tempted to throw in other colors. I love color!

Sounds like fun challenge. I do so love quilts with white and other colors. Seems you can't go wrong. I look forward to see what you create for it.
