2021 Monthly Color Challenge Finish!

We've reached the end. Of the 2021 Monthly Color Challenge that is!

This year I went with a very simple finish, I think we all deserve that.

Strip piecing (and following those pressing directions 😉😉) help the quilt come together quickly. I switched around the colors in the sashing for this quilt and I love how the dark shows off the blocks.

I love this version using Benartex Superior Solids. The colors just pop out of the background.

I had fun with the smaller version of the Monthly Color Challenge quilt and used up even more scraps in the sashing. The purple border really helped to settle this very colorful version down.

Ready to get your finishing instructions? You can find them (for free through January 31, 2022) in my Patterns By Jen Payhip shop. If you have signed up for email notifications you will find it in your inbox.

The layouts for the past Monthly Color Challenges can also be found in the Payhip shop if you are looking for a different finish. They all work for these blocks and are just $1.

Look for the 2022 Monthly Color Challenge Announcement next week!
Thank you for stitching along with me this year.

Make something extraordinary!
