February Color Challenge Block!
Happy February! This month's color is BLUE! 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 all about flying geese! The instructions are written for the traditional way of making flying geese. If you are looking to make the no waste flying geese, you can find my tutorial in the Barn Quilt Block Tutorial here. At the end of the year I'll give setting instructions for a 12 block and a 24 block quilt. There is a possibility of a 36 block quilt too! 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 February, you can get the block pattern from my Craftsy shop.
Here's what this block would look like if used repeated in a quilt! I love the secondary design that occurs with the corners of the block.
Remember that 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 $25 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop!
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!
