As I also like to take the Contemporary Quilters Journal Quilt Challenge, I thought I would combine the two. The JQ challenge involves a small quilt each month for a year (see journal quilts elsewhere on this website). This year the brief is that they must be 11" X 11" and to a theme which we can set for ourselves, but commit to at the beginning of the year.
As I like to have samples to show in class, I decided to make my jqs on the theme of Black and White, with a splash.
It is almost the end of January, so I thought I had better get started. This jq is the result of looking around my desk and deciding to draw a mug of assorted items, adding a small pile of notebooks to the side. Almost anything can look ok if the colour is right. The mug is actually blue, but I decided to make it pink.
