December Color Challenge

Welcome to November's Color Challenge! This month the "colors" are Black and White.

Here's the block!

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 Dec 15th.

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

Make a block this month, add it to the link up at the end of the month and you could win a fat quarter bundle of Fog Modern Background Colorbox Bella Solids from this month's sponsor The Fat Quarter Shop.

Piecing Tips

For strip piecing and trimming tips see THIS POST.

Do you find that as you trim units from strips that every now and then, for whatever reason, you get a piece that is suddenly not straight? Here's what I do.  instead of lining up the outside edge of the fabric with the needed measurement to cut, I move my ruler over just a bit further, making sure my middle seam is straight along the ruler. Make that cut, then flip the unit you just cut.

Now trim off that wonky size and you have a straight unit.

Grand Prize

Wait! There is more!
Jen at Dizzy Quilter is providing the grand prize! 

For every month you enter the link up, you get an entry for the grand prize.

The generous prize provided is you will get your top quilted by her (up to 90" x 90"),  a $202.50 value!

You must provide the backing, 8" longer than width and length. Batting can be purchased from Jen, for $20, if you like.

Return shipping is included for US residents only.
**Please note, the quilt will not be trimmed or bound, those services are extra**

 If you are playing along with us, make sure to use #2018monthlycolorchallenge on social media!

Happy Stitching!

  1. Through no fault of yours I can't get the last pattern from Craftsy. Are you going to have it somewhere else?


I love to get your comments and hear your ideas. I always respond to comments (though it may take me a few days), if you haven't heard from me it might mean you are a no reply commenter. If you haven't heard back from me, check back here, because I will reply to the comment.
