March's PMQG Challenge Announcement

The challenge project for March has been announced, we'll be doing a Monochromatic Quilt Challenge!

The rules are simple:

*Choose one color (since we all wanted to use up our stash in 2011 it's your choice) and use the various ranges of that color to make your project. For example - if you choose purple you can use lilac, lavender, egglant, etc.  These can be prints, solids or both.

*The use of one neutral in addition to your color is optional.

*Your project can be as big or small as you want (pillow, quilt, hotpad, whatever inspires you!)

*Bring to the meeting on March 15th to show off!
