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 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 february 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.
Bay Leaf or green was a challenge but I did have some scraps from a green quilt I made a few years ago, and there was enough to keep it all the same green. I like using up scraps but I also like some uniformity.
I made a slight oopsie with my block so I have an adapted block but it still works. Your block will be slightly different. Just proof that there are mistakes and design opportunities!
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.
Our Finish along starts this month
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. More info to come. Sign up to our Snippets News for all the details.
Quilt Colour fun…
Green is not s major feature in many of our patterns but this one item I love using. The Honey Bee Tablerunner pattern shows some easy embroidery and themed fabric. The bright colours are al ways happy on my table.
