January Color Challenge Block!
Happy New Year everyone! Let's kick this year off with this Monthly Color Challenge. This month's color is RED! If you want more details on the challenge read about it here.
Jen from Patterns by Jen designed a block that can be made in 6" and 12" finished. I opted to make all the blocks 12" to match the blocks I designed. You can get Jen's block pattern from her blog here.
The goal of the challenge is to have an entire block or project made from that month's color.
So I am designing a sample block each month for this challenge. My block this month is a beginner friendly one to start off the year! At the end of the year I'll give setting instructions for a 12 block and a 24 block quilt. For my block I used the same 2 reds, a dark and bright red as Jen did in her block. You can download my block's pattern for free until the end of the month by clicking the button below. If you are reading this after January, you can get the block pattern from my Craftsy shop.
Remember to be entered in the giveaway this month, you will need to post your block or project on Jen's blog during the last week of the month. No need to worry, I'll be posting a reminder to link up closer to that time. The giveaway this month is a pack of Artisan Spirit Shimmer Strips sponsored by Northcutt. The strips are jelly roll style strips at 2.5" wide.
Don't forget to check out the other bloggers who are participating in this challenge to check out their projects and blocks! I can't wait to see what they are up to as well!
