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 January 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. I liked this fabric with the hint of red as well, good for this month. Actually the slight plaid look I really enjoyed and I was pretty pleased with the pattern alignment as well.
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…
I have not made many quilts using orange, and I will admit to likening a bright yellow to Saffron more than orange so I am going to share a pattern we have that the original is made with a gorgeous yellow and white. It’s called ‘You are my Sunshine’.
If you are a fan of drunkards path blocks then this is a great quilt for you.
