March 2021 Monthly Color Challenge

We've reached the last month of Quarter 1! I'm going to try not to wish this month to go too quickly, but I'm super excited to pick the random winners April 1st for Quarter 1 of the 2021 Monthly Color Challenge.

This month's color is red orange and is inspired by the sweet potato, or is it a yam? I think you will find this month's bloggers may have something to say about it.

Who can blame them? Even the stores seem to be confused. Be that as it may, the sweet potato is one of my favorite foods, especially with brown sugar, butter and marshmallows. Yum!

Enjoy another simple block and the recipes the 2021 Monthly Color Challenge bloggers share.

**Remember! Each month there is a How-to Video included at the bottom of the instructions. Simply click on the link provided to watch.**

Please Read the How To Video for March has the background and main colors switched around. The above picture has the correct colors in place.
