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 august 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.
Cinnamon is possibly my favourite spice, especially for sweet things. There are some health benefits to Cinnamon as well. Cinnamon Scroll anyone?
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…
Brown for cinnamon, not a hugely featured colour in our designs but I do have this one which is a darker red brown thread used in an embroidered piece. Then I found a great cinnamon coloured frame to show it off.
You can get our Be A Bee embroidery pattern on our website and make up to a wallhanging or part of a quilt or smaller item like a bag or cushion.
