02 Apr Project Modern Monochromatic Challenge
I almost didn’t participate in this challenge. I LOVE quilts with a limited color palette and often work this way. For some reason, I could NOT come up with a design I really liked for this challenge. I had several good designs, but nothing that really spoke to me.
So…I decided I just wasn’t going to participate this time. But it kind of nagged at me in the back of my mind. I mean, monochromatic is right up my alley! In the meantime, I was working on a baby quilt commission for a friend of mine when it suddenly hit me that it would look great as a monochromatic quilt.
It also had to be blue solid fabric – which, of course, I did not have enough of. I ordered the fabric last Tuesday night on March 22. When my husband got home late that night, I told him what an insane thing I had just done. The deadline was less than ten days away and I didn’t even have the fabric yet! Talk about nuts 🙂
The fabric arrived Friday morning and I got to work. Despite a crazy weekend and week, I was still hoping to get it done. I called my husband yesterday (the deadline) at about noon to tell him I didn’t know if I was going to make it. Luckily, with some help from said husband in finishing dinner and taking daughter to dance, I did finish it and get it photographed all before the final deadline last night. Phew! Remind me not to do this again, please!
I hope you (and Malka) like it – it is called “Off the Deep End.”
(I am making a pattern out of this one which will be available in May).
