Meet the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge Bloggers

During the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge there will be over thirty bloggers sharing their tips, tricks and pretty blocks with you throughout the year.

There will be many familiar "faces" but there are some new bloggers as well!

Take your time and have a look see at these awesome bloggers, bookmark their blogs, and start pulling fabric, because the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge will be here before we know it! Unlike the American Robin who will not return for many, many months here in Minnesota.

We will be making half-square triangles (HST), Flying Geese (FG), Square in a Square (SIS) blocks as well as some tradition four patch units. I like these specialty rulers for trimming these blocks. They are NOT required, but they definitely make trimming a little faster/easier.

Tucker Trimmer for HST
Wing Clipper for FG
Square Squared2 for SIS

You can find these in my Etsy shop HERE.

***Now through December 31,2019***
Receive FREE SHIPPING ( to US residents only, 50% shipping refund on orders outside of the country) on any ruler with code 2020MCC

To have the block sent directly to your email sign up HERE.

NOTE: Even if you signed up for emails for 2019, you will still need to sign up for the 2020 emails this year.

Start looking through your stash then come back for:

Meet the sponsors! December 20th.

Happy Stitching!

  1. I am so excited to be part of the 2020 Color Challenge. I love that the colors are all based on our feathered friends.

  2. I am looking forward to sewing with you in 2020! This is going to be a great year - one for the birds! :-) Yay!

  3. What a great group of bloggers! This looks to be so much fun - and silly me is thinking of doing an applique bird along with the block. We will see how that flies (or whether that idea is grounded).

  4. I'm pulling fabrics from my stash today! Looks like lots of fun and most of the bloggers mentioned are already on my list of favorite blogs I read daily! Thanks so much.

  5. It's going to be a wonderful and colorful new year! It's great to be joining you on this adventure :)

  6. Just today decided to take you up on your challenge and made my block for January!!

  7. I'm all signed up for the 2020 Color Challenge but still can't find the link to get the June block. Help?
