a monthly challenge...

so i like to create challenges for myself, i need something to keep the creative juices flowing!!!
i've been so inspired by some lovely ladies doing some amazing patchwork and i want to practice my patience at quilting. my grandma was the best quilter and i aspire to be as good as her, so i thought i'd practice with mini quilts!!!
i would like to keep the size under 12" square and each month will be designed off of one word completely open in interpretation, those are my only rules.

jan. black & white
feb. red
mar. bows
april rain
may floral
june circle
july yellow
aug. houses
sept. line
oct. blue
nov. triangles
dec. trees

with these mini-quilts you can make:
mug rugs
pot holders
wall hangings
doll beds pillow
save up for a large quilt

here are some flickr pools for inspiration and the two above blogs are awesome!!! also check out melissa's new blog blu for more inspiring posts.

so join with me or create your own challenge...
