Welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing my block from the Monthly color challenge by Jen at Patternsbyjen.blogspot.com. Jenn has been doing this for quite sometime and I have participated quite a few times. This year, she is doing something a bit different. Instead of having quite a few bloggers each month, she has just 1.
I chose this month for a couple of reasons. I wanted to do early in the year, and I do like red. Red is such a pretty vibrant color and every time I wear it I get loads of compliments. You would think for those 2 reasons I would have lots of red in my stash. Well, I didn't. I had given some to a friend and forgot to replace it.
I did find 2 pieces of red, and 1 of them is actually a very lightweight corduroy.
This year the theme Jen chose for her monthly color challenge is Classic cars.
My block for this month:
I just went and bought some red fabrics for a quilt I am making at a quilt retreat. As soon as I make sure everything is cut, then I will make a few more blocks and quilt it and share it with you. It will be sometime this month.
Monthly colors for this year are:
January - pink
March - red
April - olive green
May - baby blue
June - grey
August - brown
September - mustard
November - green
December - orange
You can find the pattern for free this month on Jen's blog at Patternsbyjen.blogspot.com
I appreciate Jen letting me join in on her monthly color challenge again this year. What color is your favorite color of classic cars? Leave a comment to let me know.
Thanks for joining me. I have some fun projects to share with you and will be participating in some blog hops.
