Red-Orange August Monthly Color Challenge Block
Month eight or August of 2019 is upon us already. The block for Jen’s 2019 Monthly Color Challenge is here and it features the beautiful red-orange color. If you visit her website the pattern is free for the month of August.
Red-Orange August Challenge
Jen released the August block at the beginning of the month. The flower that inspired this month’s color challenge is the marigold. Whenever I hear anything about marigolds, I immediately think of Sue’s grandmother, Ruby. Ruby always had a nice neat row of marigold between her house and the sidewalk leading to her side door. Every year.
I’ve always heard that marigolds keep the rabbits and deer away. I can see why as I don’t think they smell that great, but their beauty makes up for it. Red-orange was always one of my favorite crayons in the box of 64. So many choices in the Crayola box but red-orange was one that was often selected.
Red-Orange A Strip Piecing
Sue rallied and cut all the fabrics for me as she had picked the fabrics back in January for the whole year. I am really pleased with how the background fabric lets the red-orange be the star and shine. The segments went together easily with a bit of strip piecing making quick work of it.
Ta-da! The August block is completely finished and a success. Woot woot! Here it is with all of the previous blocks hanging out on the design wall. Only four more blocks to make!
