I thought it would be interesting to look at the full set of 2011 JQs together. I had at the outset planned them as a loose set, sharing theme, colour palette and fabrics. The thread of colour runs through them all but my button quilts have let me down. A sad case of the theme running away with me, and my leaving my brain behind! Now that I have finished them, I can see the possibilities that could have been.
Message to self - don't over think things - keep ideas simple - let the fabrics do the talking.
I'm not going to join the JQ challenge this year, already part of a group challenge using red, so will comcentrate on that and some larger pieces this year along with CQ10, quite enough I think.
