Color Palette/Crazy Quilt Journal/Bead Journal Project Challenges, December 2012

The Color Palette Challenge threw a curve ball this month --- mono chromatic! It doesn't FIT with all the other eleven challenges and so I'm thinking I won't count it in my Quilt Journal or Bead Journal Project Challenges. Instead, I will search out fabrics and trims used in the past eleven Color Palette Challenges and make a "composite" block that does fit...

Anyway, here is my monochromatic block, using the block 12 grid from the "I dropped the button box" crazy quilt on PinTangle:



I have to say, I really enjoyed working with this one --- it was fun getting a set of fabrics, threads, trims and beads that were of the same color --- although I did cheat a little (that checkered fabric had as much ecru in it as green and so I added ecru lace and a touch of gold in the threads, beads and buttons... (gold isn't a color, right? It's an accent! LOL).

Hmmmm, maybe, in 2013, I can do monochromatic blocks for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project challenge... I'm thinking greens, blues and maybe a touch of violet? Aaargh! What AM I thinking --- I got so sick of that color set in "Kimono - Revisited" and "Birds of a Feather" this year. So maybe this block will be a stand-alone and I'll move to the other end of the color spectrum and go with reds, oranges and yellows... Bright and cheerful and totally different!

Here is the alternate block, based on the block 6 grid form from the "I dropped the Button Box Quilt" and six colors that were used more than once in the previous eleven blocks...

I think it fits in with the previous eleven months a lot better than the all-green one.
