Monthly color challenge November 2020

 Welcome to November.   Time just seems to be flying by.   

This month's color challenge is buff.   I am hoping that my color worked for this.  I have been trying to use  my stash as much as I can.

This is what Google says about buff: it is a light brownish yellow color.   

This month's color inspiration is the Buff breasted sandpiper.  

This bird is a small shorebird.  This species is brown above, and has a buff face and underparts in all plumages. It has a short bill and yellow legs. Males are larger than females. Juveniles resemble the adults, but may be paler on the rear underparts.

Now on to the block.   This is a very easy block to sew.    You can chain piece a lot of the block before you press seams. 

A couple of tips:  a real Time saver is to chain piece as many pieces as you can.    

If they are for different steps, as soon as you start the steps, pin a piece of paper to the 1st one with that step number. 

2nd tip -  is the 3 P's: press, press and press.  The blocks look so much nicer when you press.  

This block sews up very fast.  To get this pattern visit Jen's blog at Https://
