2011 Monochromatic Challenge

Don’t feel like you have to do everything but here at Patchwork Times, in 2011, we’re going to be hosting:

  • Stashbusting Reports
  • Design Wall Monday Reports
  • UFO Challenge
  • Monochromatic Challenge

For the Monochromatic Challenge, it will be similar to the UFO Challenge in that I will draw a number on the last day of each month. The corresponding color will be the quilt you work for the next month. That post will also have a link box for you to share your monochromatic piece for the previous month. Your piece can be a quilt of any size, a wall hanging, a pillow case, a pillow .. whatever you want to do. The whole point of this challenge is to get us out of our comfort zone and try something new and hopefully use the stash.

There’s a bit more info about the challenge posted here.

Monochromatic Challenge

I am going to put up a clickable button on my sidebar so participants can easily find the info/projects but don’t feel like you have to copy it. I don’t want to take up your whole sidebar with my projects but I do intend to stay real busy in 2011 and am hoping some of you will play along with me.

We’re going to do this January – September, have a couple of “special” colors for October and November and take off in December. Add a background (white, ecru . . whatever background fabric you’d like) if you want to, or add black. Really, do what you want just so it’s kinda monochromatic.

Here are the colors we’ll be using:

  1. Red
  2. Orange
  3. Yellow
  4. Green
  5. Blue
  6. Indigo
  7. Violet
  8. Pink
  9. Brown

October will be a two color quilt. This is NOT a two fabric quilt. Say your colors are red and green. You can use as many reds and greens as you’d like, along with a background or black fabric.

November will be black and white with one color added. Use as many blacks, as many whites (or ecru) and as many fabrics of ONE color as you’d like. Examples: black, white and red or black, white and green or whatever third color you’d like.

The colors for each month and the link to the post:

January – Yellow
February – Violet
March – Brown
April – Orange
May – Red
June – Indigo
July – Blue
August – Pink
September – Green
October – Two Color (not two fabric)
