Color of the Month Block Connection
Happy Happy Birthday to Sissy, a.k.a. Janice. It was a freezing cold day when she was born and that tradition continues today! ♥ ♥ ♥
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 January is green. This seems like a nicely organized sew along to me for several reasons. First of all, Jen has shared all of the colors by month at the start. Her inspiration, the Bells of Ireland, are all derived from nature and flowers. All of the blocks will finish at 12 inches, and I’m certain a layout will be shared. Another reason is the recommendation of friends who are also participating.
Our Color Block
The pattern for the current month is shared by Jen, at no cost. Thank you very much, Jen. We are hoping to use a similar low volume background fabric throughout the monthly blocks. Swiss Dot is our choice for the background and it is one of our very favorites. We’ve never met a Swiss dot that we didn’t just love! On the left you can see the Sand Swiss Dot fabric we chose by Riley Blake.
The free block is available until January 31, 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. We look forward to seeing everyone’s blocks as the months progress, and to finish with a pretty quilt.
