2021 Monthly Color Challenge

We are welcoming 2021 with plans for a fantastic year! There’s lots of news to share with you throughout the upcoming month.

To kickoff the year, we are blog hosts for the 4th annual MONTHLY COLOR CHALLENGE hosted by Jen Shaffer ~ Patterns by Jen. Starting 2021 January 1 and continuing thru 2021 December, each month Jen will release a FREE PATTERN for a new MYSTERY BLOCK in 6″ and 12″ sizes. We, along with fellow bloggers, will feature our block and helpful tips the 1st of each month.

This year’s theme is “fruits and vegetables” and a healthy start to a new year. The color for each month is designated by healthy eating.

BONUS: Bloggers will also be sharing favorite recipes.

  • January ~ Eggplant (purple)
  • February ~ Lemon (bright yellow)
  • March ~ Yam (red orange)
  • April ~ Cherries (red)
  • May ~ Potato (brown)
  • June ~ Pumpkin (orange)
  • July ~ Lime (green)
  • August ~ Mushroom (tan)
  • September ~ Pineapple (soft yellow)
  • October ~ Grapefruit (pink)
  • November ~ Blueberries (blue)
  • December ~ Green Olives (olive green)

What is your favorite part of a quilt along? Whether we are gathering with friends in person or online, we love seeing fellow quilters fabric choices and the results. Future quilts are often created from the inspiration colors.

With 27 blog hosts sewing together, there will be an abundance of inspiration and helpful hints. So, who will be sewing along with us this year?

Isn’t that an amazing lineup of quilters?! We are honored to be amongst such creative minds.

It’s time to gather your fabrics. This is a great project for making use of scraps as each block features different colors. Will you be using a particular fabric line or merge your favorite fabrics together to create the fun quilt? We are off to sort thru scraps to gather just the right color combination.

Mark your calendars! Let’s meet back here on Friday, January 1st for the first block!

Happy Sewing! Crystal Drummond
