Color of the Month Block February Connection
Something new we’re doing this year is a color of the month block. We are joining in with Jen at Patterns By Jen for this monthly challenge.
The color of the month for February is pink. I love that Jen has shared all of the colors by month at the start of the challenge. Her inspiration this month carnations, which make me think of my mom. She was a huge fan of carnations. I’ve tried to grow them to no avail. This block like all of the blocks will finish at 12 inches.
Our Color Block
The pattern for the current month is shared by Jen, at no cost. Thank you very much, Jen. We are using the same low volume background fabric that we introduced with the January block.
The February block features four hourglass mini blocks. We had a little trouble trimming one of the four half-square triangles, so those points got lost a bit. Oh well. If anyone cares to notice once the whole quilt is together, they’ll be able to find some blunders. I’d hate to disappoint them! Here’s our January and February blocks together.
The free block is available until February 28, 2019, so if you are interested hop over now! To see blocks made by other quilters, be sure to use the hashtag #2019monthlycolorchallenge on social media. I am looking forward to seeing everyone’s blocks as the months progress, and to finish with a pretty quilt. Next month’s color is navy blue. I think that will look nice with the Sand dots, don’t you think?
