What is this year long plan?
The Monthly Color Challenge is in it’s fifth year, and I am excited to join in again for 2022. This year we’re getting our colour inspiration from Spices.
Each month there is a change in colour and a new block. You can see all the colours to come this year at this post on Jen’s blog. Jen also shares all the info on what you need and you can choose to sign up to receive the block sent straight to your inbox.
My april Block
I have planned a consistent background of the white for this year’s quilt and will be adding the feature
colour color. There are a plethora of scraps in my studio so I have vowed to sew from them if I possibly can. Some more of the sample fabric with skulls and flames was used for this block, just in black instead of pink.
Nigella Seeds – OK, this one threw me and I had no idea they were called this, so Google was my friend again. Perhaps I need to expand my spice experience.
Can you see this block repeated, maybe with lots of colours and some awesome quilting in the open spaces? I totally can, one day that’s on the list.
So, if you are keen to sew along with us this year, there’s a layout design for you at the end of the year, head over to Jen’s blog and join in. The blocks are free for the release month, and you can have them sent to your inbox.
Need some cheering on?
Join in the fun of a block a month and a quilt at the end of the year. Join me for a Finish Along and get your quilt completed.
If you are not sure of the process of making your quilt, I invite you to join our Finishing School for a series of tutorials, taking blocks to a completed quilt.

Quilt Colour fun…
One of my favourites of our patterns, using a layer cake and some easy applique, this is a striking quilt, and honours our defence members past and present. The title below will link to the pattern on our website.
