What is this year long plan?
The Monthly Color Challenge is in it’s fifth year, and I have enjoyed joining 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 november 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 required a lot of piecing together smaller bits of the fabric to create large enough pieces to cut out the bits required. Franken-piecing if that makes sense.
November is inspired by Clove, so a lovely dark brown. I love the smell of cloves though some may find it quite strong. The images of oranges with cloves studded in them is a lovely festive image for me.
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 is not a huge feature colour but I know there are bits in some of our patterns. Actually I really liked the brown frame I managed to find for this design.
