Pondering is over and I've decided I really needed this to be a bit bigger so I added a dark brown border.
Better now!

I spent a couple of hours this afternoon trying to find some "Orange" fabric to start this months challenge.   No luck!
I don't like orange.
 I don't buy orange.
 Sooooo unless something really magnificent pops into my head about the one piece of orange striped fabric that I did find..... I guess I'm going to pass on this months challenge.

I think I'll pull out one of the UFO's  and see how much I can get done this month.   And next week I'm going to try to get hubby to add more shelves to the closet so I can have more space to organize my fabric.
Have a great weekend.

Well.... I'm almost a week into this new month and I'm just finishing the Brown Monochromatic Challenge quilt for March.  I've always said that I'm a slug when it comes to cranking out finished tops and this one is no exception.  I don't know where the last couple of weeks went or even what I accomplished.

Oh well...back to the quilt.  I toyed with adding another border (and I may still do it yet) but for now I'm calling this top finished.

Here are just a few of the border blocks I made.  This was fun trying to put the jigsaw strips together to make a straight strip.  Time consuming .... but fun.

 If you would like to see the brown quilts some of the other quilters made just head on over to Judy's Patchwork Times blog.

Now I have to think about this months color.
OMGosh!  It's ORANGE!
