2022 monthly color challenge – october
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 october 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.
October is inspired by Sage. Usually a plant I have in my garden but I have been awesome this year and managed to kill this and my mint plant. I know right, amazing!
Green is not a common colour but I did have enouhg of this to make the block.
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.

Ok, green is not a recurring colour in our patterns but we have used a sage green in one of our Christmas designs, check them our by clicking the titles shown below. It’s a bit of a secret until you click through as I am having a slight technical issues with pictures to share with you .
