This year we are finding our inspiration from Classic Cars. You can read all of the information in the Announcing the 2023 Monthly Color Challenge post.

We're changing it up a bit and going with one featured blogger each month. These talented bloggers are giving of their precious time to make the Monthly Color Challenge the success that it is. I hope you take a minute to meet each one.

I have asked each one these four questions:
1) If you have your drivers license at what age did you receive it?
2) What was the first car you owned?
3) Can you drive a stick shift?
4) Favorite snack for a road trip?

This year our blocks are taking a little bit of a modern twist (still beginner friendly). To help with squaring up the units we will be making a 6 1/2" square ruler or 6 1/2" x 12 1/2" rectangle ruler will be helpful, but are NOT required. If you have the 6 1/2" x 24 1/2" ruler that will work just fine.

You can find the 6 1/2" square here.

You can find the 6 1/2" x 12 1/2" here.

Benartex Designer Fabrics has sponsered the 2023 Monthly Color Challenge this year. You can see the fabrics in this unboxing video.

  1. Awesome! Great answers from everyone I was surprised so many knew how to drive stick shift. I learned it too in Denmark but when I went to college in the US I was the only girl who knew that -impressed the boys!!
