February 2022 Monthly Color Challenge

February is here and I am so ready to share the next block in the 2022 MOnthy Color Challenge!

This month the block is inspired by the bay leaf. I'm not much of a cook, but when I add that bay leaf into my beef stew I feel like such a chef. 😂

The bay leaf is an aromatic leaf commonly used in cooking. It can be used whole or in a dried or ground form.If eaten whole, bay leaves are pungent and have a sharp, bitter taste. As with many spices and flavourings, the fragrance of the bay leaf is more noticeable than its taste. When the leaf is dried, the aroma is herbal, slightly floral, and somewhat similar to oregano and thyme. - Wikipedia

This block is only a little bit difficult because of the measuring units, so when making it, take your time. Measure twice, cut once is definitely the goal here. Once the cuts are made strip piecing makes this block a quickie!
