Back in 2019 STLMQG had a color spoke challenge, where we were to choose one "spoke" of the color wheel and use only that color plus neutrals to make a block each month. Each month's block assignment featured a theme or skill. I chose yellow-green as my color, combined only with black and white. About a year ago I put my blocks together into this flimsy:
Some of these blocks were from the BOM assignments and some were extras that I added.
I pin-basted the quilt, then waited for my order of invisible thread to arrive. Then Covid hit, my order got delayed, and the project sat. Then last fall my order arrived but I was pushing to get the Mario quilt finished in time for Christmas, while at the same time getting ready to move. Anyway, the color spoke project became a UFO.
I wanted to use invisible thread for the quilting because of the high contrast in the patchwork, but my machine can't use it. The invisible thread is too fine for the tension on my machine to handle - it just keeps breaking the thread. So, plan B, white thread for the quilting.
STLMQG is still planning on having a quilt show in July, a live show if possible. I'd like to get this quilt finished and send it to them for the show. I'm still a member, so my quilt is eligible. Wish me luck to get it done!
