November 2020 Monthly Color Challenge

 November is here! Here in the US that means cold, windy days and time with family at the end of the month to give thanks.




Inspired by their gracious flight, unique and sometimes vibrant color, I chose birds to guide us in our challenge this year. To see the full year in preview read the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge Announcement.

This month our inspiration comes from the Buff-breasted Sandpiper. Buff is defined as a brownish yellow color. I can't wait to hear who has this color in their stash!  How many will be surprised to actually find it?

The Buff-breasted Sandpiper looks like such a sweet, soft bird. I think it's the eyes. Here are some more fun facts from All About Birds.



Unlike most shorebirds, Buff-breasted Sandpipers forage in dry, grassy habitats, not wetlands.

Buff-breasted Sandpipers nest only in the High Arctic of northernmost Alaska and Canada. 

After mating, females raise their chicks without any help from the male.

Buff-breasted Sandpipers eat mostly insects, spiders, isopods (pillbugs), snails, and earthworms. They forage for insects much like plovers, walking along quickly, then suddenly stopping to look and listen, then seizing prey with the short, fine bill.

Let's see November's block!  November is an easy  block with two of my favorite quilt block units, (Let's be honest, I pretty much love all the quilt block units), the HST and the Square in a Square unit.



The instructions include a How To video, especially for the Color Challenge participants.

This year I am offering instructions for making the background the same throughout with a neutral. You can download the yardage amount and instructions HERE.
