Decision made! I have signed up to take part in the Journal Quilt Challenge 2016 with the QGBI Contemporary Group. So, here are the challenge rules:
1. One JQ for each month.
2. 8" x 10" portrait format.
3. Include an area not less than ½" square of a set colour, this must be included as a whole, not cut up and used in several areas.
January - April a little bit of purple
May - August a little bit of green
September - December a little bit of orange
I have to say it was the colour rule that made me hesitate about signing up, I'm fine with green but don't usually work with either purple or orange. So it's a case of the "outside my comfort zone" thing.
My own guidelines will include working with textured fabrics and silks, including hand stitching and some new techniques (new to me that is) and I would like to have an outline design for the year in mind so that the journal quilts sit together as a whole eventually. So it's a case of finding some purple fabric and watching this space......could indigo be described as purple?!!!
