January - yellow

Here's my first finish for Judy's Monochromatic Challenge 2011.  This month's assignment was yellow, with some leeway allowed toward gold, etc.  I rummaged through my strip bin and came up with just enough sunshiney pieces to make up a simple runner.

I'll probably be making runners of one sort or another for many of the colors/months for this challenge.  I plan to sell them in the boutique at my guild show this fall.  Last year was the first time I participated in the boutique, and the pieces I offered were all sold, so I'm excited about making more for this year!

Just the right colour to cheer up the grey shades of winter

It looks so warm and cheerful! I always admire how quilters seem to be able to mix and match fabrics so that their patterns look good. Runners would sell well... I'd like lots in different colours to choose from. What's the next colour theme?

It's so pretty! Making table runner size projects is a great idea.

Love it Jeanne. I have yet to start mine. It's planned out, but not even cut yet. I maybe should have chosen something smaller to do. Looking forward to seeing your next one. : )

Looks nice! I did a bunch of table runners for Christmas. They were so fun! I'm anxious to see your next months runner in violet. Toni

People will be lining up WAY before that boutique starts to buy one of these great table runners! Good job!

Very nice runner!! I just love a Log Cabin anything. And the yellows make it very cheery and bright. Congrats on selling all your items!

Very nice! It turned out well. I like that you made something to fit what you had already rather than buying more. Good job.
