June Color Challenge

Welcome to June's Color Challenge!

It's my favorite color, and uses my favorite unit, the awesome Half Square Triangle. We could stop the Color Challenge right here and I would make a billion of these and be perfectly happy for life!

Get your free pattern here! It will be available for free through June 2019, at which point it will be bundled with the other blocks and settings and sold as a full pattern. Settings will be released in December.

Blog Hop

Don't forget to visit the other bloggers. A few of the bloggers have designed their own block for you and they have been pretty great so far. You won't want to miss them.

The Prize

This month's sponsor is Art Gallery Fabrics.

Win this fat quarter bundle of AGF.

Ten beautiful fabrics.

Piecing Tips

This block is pretty simple and there aren't a lot of tips to share.

When stitching watch your seam allowance, it will keep your points sharp if your seams are all the same width.

Spin your seams.

How do you get a chance at winning the beatufiful fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics? Make something purple *this month* and add it to the link up that will open June 23 and run through June 30. One entry per person please. Each month you enter you get entered into the drawing for the Grand Prize.

  1. This whole spinning seams things is something I need to look into. I am going to be making pinwheels this week, so thanks for the reminder. Another fabulous block design Jen.

  2. So funny how more than one of us have Purple as our favorite. :) I think all of the Jens mentioned that anyways. haha

  3. I love that you spin your seams! I definitely need to do that more, but I don't often take the time! Thanks for hosting this awesome challenge!
