Brown is the colour for March in Judy’s monthly Monochromatic Challenge.

It’s difficult for me to think in shades of brown at this time of year.  When March arrives, I start thinking in pastels and Easter egg colours.  Maybe I could think of this project as the Easter chocolate?!   Hmmm, chocolate bunnies and chocolate Easter eggs…yummy!  That’ll do it — now I’m in the mood for Springtime Brown.  😉

I don’t have much brown in my stash, but what there is might look nice in this arrangement.  I have been thinking of this pattern for a long time, with the horizontal and vertical blocks each having a different number of rails or stripes.  I even drew a sketch of this quilt a couple of weeks ago while waiting for an appointment, so I guess its time has come!

This design is very similar to the green Strip-Stripe quilt I am (still) working on for my husband, except these blocks will be larger — 6.5 inches unfinished.  The four vertical rails will be pieced from 2-inch strips, and the three horizontal rails will be 2.5-inch strips.

Here’s my small collection of browns, which range from tan through rust to dark brown.  I think it will be fun to mix these up and see what happens!  🙂

Please visit Judy to see what other quilters have on their Design Walls today.

Happy Quilting!
