Brown and #1 for March

Judy pulled the color Brown for the Monochromatic Challenge color this month.  It took me all of one hour to find something to make.  Odd that it took me so long.  I usually have things stacked up and planned, ready to rock and roll.  I may not finish with what I originally planned, but the point is, I have lots of ideas and plans.  Anyway, this month I made exactly what I planned (so far - I still have to quilt it).  Here's the top:


I'm thinkin' a freestyle feather wreath-ish thing in the middle and bright squares.  Maybe some kind of posies and vines outside that.  That's where I've bogged down.  So many options.  Too many.  I'm open to suggestions.

Judy also pulled UFO #1 for the month of March.  I have a whole lot of other sewing to do before that, so I probably won't get it done.  I may not get it started, but we'll see.

Girl - you have been BUSZZZZY!!!! Geez - we just got the brown assignment! I haven't even begun to think about what I will do for this one! Brown/beige with FLOWERS in roses - that I have - and am drooling over. But nothing that will really qualify for this challenge!
Wendy - Both quilts are absolutely lovely!

I vote for quilting feathers and/or ferns. Both quilt tops are beautiful!

My DREADED #1 is a dresden plate quilt. I am not looking forward to appliquing those plates down. UGH. You're lucky you've got one project well under way! It's pretty.
