The color for the block this month is yellow. The block is done in a dark and light yellow.
But wait!!!! Jen has a fun surprise for you!!!!! This year she added a bonus of using a constant background color in either black or white.
My white one is cut. I will share it in about a week.
I really love all of the backgrounds.
And she has sponsors for each quarter this year. So, yes, you can win prizes.

Those are some awesome prizes. It makes doing the blocks doubly worth it, right?
This block is very quick and easy to make. Which is a good thing, because I make my quilts in bed sizes, so I know I need to make some extra blocks.
A couple of tips:
First test out to make sure you have the right seam allowance. Cut just a small strip of 2 colors, run your 1/4" seam allowance and measure. Having the correct seam allowance is really a big deal.
2nd: make sure you cut accurately. I cut my pieces the size I am instructed to and then once they are sewn, I double check measurements and trim if I need to. Remember measure twice, cut once.
I really hope you enjoy the monthly color challenge.
