Monochrome Challenge




The Chatham-Kent Quilt Guild first challenge in preparation for our show next spring, is our monochrome challenge.

As I was putting it together, all I could think of was cinnamon, so it has become 'cinnamon sticks'.

Added a little embellishment with real cinnamon sticks and some glorious ribbon ...


More black and white with a splash of red

This one is just finished (maybe) ... from Maaike Bakker's "Strip-Pieced Quilts", 'Breaking Out' pattern, my interpretation with a little upsizing also.

I really like the way this one turned out. Still debating with myself whether to add some light quilting in the black border.

This one is a nice lap size, now will make another bigger one for my grad gift for my middlest.

Taggies!


Who knew! New to me, one of the quilt guild members brought to a recent meeting, a 'taggie' she had just made.



These are wonderful little quiltlets, with lots of tags. You know how little ones will cuddle up with their blankies and snuggle the nice soft tags/labels? Well, here's a whole set of tags. Finding various samples out and about the internet, thought the recommendation to make two was a great idea :)



These match the quilt for the almost-here babe ...

There is a wide variety of textures - cordouroy and satin on the back, giant rick-rack, organza, satin, grosgrain, reflective dinosaurs. Lots to keep little hands busy.

Ready for baby!


In a complete departure from my usual, the quilt is ready and the baby is not quite! I am leaving the label until he's presented himself to the world - want his birth date and details on the label :)
