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!
