Joining 2020 Monthly Color Challenge
We have just wrapped up the first year in joining Jen at Patterns by Jen and her Monthly Color Challenge. Tomorrow I will share our version of the quilt top featuring all of the 2019 blocks for the Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday (TGIFF) linky party. Happily enough, we will be joining Jen for her third year and the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge!
2020 Monthly Color Fabrics
For 2020, Jen is taking her color inspiration from the birds (2019’s inspiration was from flowers). You can easily imagine the sweet little yellow finch from the yellow fabric pictured above. We picked one fabric line to use in all the blocks and a Kona solid black for all the background fabrics. Crayola Kaleidoscope is the gorgeous fabric pictured above from the Fat Quarter Shop. We tried to pick out the fabric colors that we thought would represent each month the best.
2020 Monthly Color Bloggers
For year three, Jen has rounded up over 30 bloggers to play along with all the color goodness. If you’d like to get a sneak peek at the bloggers joining in, check out Jen’s meet and greet post. Not only that, but there will be quarterly sponsors – over 15 different ones. More details about all the various sponsors will be released on Friday’s post by Jen. The first of our two months will be in March where we will share the block and fabric color. Sue already has the fabric labeled so that we can quickly access the pieces as each block in released.
2020 Monthly Color Fun
Promptly on January 1st, Jen will release the first block for the new year’s challenge. Would you like to join in on the fun? You don’t need to do too much – follow Jen’s link to sign up for an email directly to you. Download the free pattern and then return to link up your block at the end of the month. Plus you’ll have a chance to win something from one of the sponsor’s. Use fabrics from your stash or use fat quarters – longest piece you will need is 19″ and the largest piece is a 7.5″ square. Stay tuned for our post in the new year.
Each Tuesday we host a linky party called To-Do Tuesday. Join us to link up your current project and/or to-do-list. Our other Linky Parties can be found by clicking the link above or along the sidebar on our website for more quilting fun – check out what our friends are up to.
