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 March 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. This one was a sample with pirate skulls and flames was almost enough to make the block, I needed to make an extra join so the piece was large enough but we go there in the end.
Pink Peppercorn – I had to look up this spice, and I can safely say I don’t have any in my kitchen.
I really like that this is a really easy block to make, the combination could be fantastic in a larger quilt format 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.
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…
This is one of our patterns that feature pink, but you could make this in a series of pinks, light to dark or even dark to light, both would look good. This pattern is a great size for a table centre.
