The 2020 Monthly Color Challenge Layout

 Who is ready for the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge Layout instructions?

I know, I know, it's a lot of squares, but when I was designing this quilt, this is what spoke to me. You can't turn away from a design that calls you, you just can't.

Wind is not a photographers friend.

Strip piecing makes the sashing go much faster than you think. Add a solid border to keep all those seams locked and you have a great lap quilt.

The wind made day 1 of this "photo shoot" impossible and my husband wins husband of the year, because wind makes me very, very crabby. We hit a few different spots and he was the best part of the day. Darn wind.

Sorry, ladies, I've marked him as mine. 😉

You can find your Pixilated instructions HERE. It will be free through January 31, 2021, after that it will be $1.

If you are looking for a different layout, all of the Color Challenge layouts will work. Head to the Payhip shop and click on the tab marked "Color Challenge Layouts" to see what is avaialable.

Thank you so much for stitching along with me. It's such a blessing to stitch with you. If you enjoyed the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge, you can join the 2021 Monthly Color Challenge starting January 1st.

Happy Stitching!
