December Color Challenge - Purple

It's my birthday month!

If you are new to the 2019 Monthly Color Challenge you can hop over quick to read through the introduction and also see the colors coming up in the months ahead.

This month's flower inspiration is the amazing crocus. A sign of spring, that right now feels far, far away. Since it's my birthday month, I chose another purple. However, I'm not having you make any half square triangles. Happy Birthday to you. ;)

Are you a beginner? For this month's blocks you might find these posts helpful:

For this months block you will need:

Rotary cutter
Marking pen/pencil

A great group of bloggers joins us each month. Please make sure to visit each one and see their blocks and read their stories.

This is a great way to meet new quilty bloggers!

Ready for your free December Monthly Color Challenge block? Find it HERE. Remember there is a change this year and the block is available for free only through December 31st. Use #2019monthlycolorchallenge on social media so we can see your blocks.

**NEW** Each months set of instructions comes with a full video tutorial!

This will not give you any of the previous month's blocks, you still need to go to Payhip and download those, but from this point on it will come directly to your inbox on the first of each month. Make sure to add patternsbyjen(at)gmail(dot)com to your email address book.

Happy Stitching!

  1. This is my birthday month as well, so happy birthday to you! How fun to celebrate your month with you. I'll do my best to make a smashing purple block in your honor :-)

  2. Happy Birthday month, Jen. I hope you celebrate each and every day. Yippee! I'm thrilled to have the last block - my monthly goal is to get this into a quilt top. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. When will the setting for the blocks come out? It said we would get it in December, did I miss the link in your post?

    1. Coming out this week, probably this weekend, unless this head cold moves along quickly. ;)
