I don't know how many of you read Judy's blog Patchwork Times. She has a truely awesome blog full of great quilts, knitting, food and so many great tips! I havent been reading her blog long. I found her blog through Jill. and I am sure glad that I did! Anyway, Judy hosts alot of different events on her blog. I know that she has done mystery quilts and this year she is doing a UFO group and a Monochromatic Challenge. You can click on the links for more details.

The Monochromatic Challenge is basically Judy picks one color a month and you make a project using just that color. You can add a white or black background. The challenge is working with 1 color and using from your stash. The project could be a quilt, pillowcase, potholder anything!!

I'm not sure yet if she is going to post a list of people in the challenge or if we just blog on our own. Either way is fine with me. I decided to give it a try because I am bad about using fabric from 1 collection and I want to learn to use color more freely. Also, I was looking at my fabric and there is no way I can use all of this stuff!!!! I need to use some of my stash up...especially since I have no plans to stop buying fabric;)

Here is a sneak peak of my January Monochromatic Challenge. The color is YELLOW!

Your block looks great, and I know whatever your finished project will be, it will look great! (Had to delete the previous comment since my spelling was horrible and I didn't proofread!) Duh! Hope your Sunday was wonderful!

I love yellow-looks like you have some beautiful fabrics in your stash. I can't wait to see what you come up with - monochromatic will be a fun challenge!
