Color Challenge 2020

I couldn't resist joining in on Jen's Color Challenge 2020, especially since I am so in love with my finished top for 2019 - it is absolutely one of my favorite quilts I have ever made!  It is so gorgeous, and I have just been admiring it on my design wall since I finished it.  (Ignore the pile at the bottom!)

  I even found the best backing fabric for it - isn't this soo perfect?

For this year's color challenge the theme is birds.  Maybe I need to keep my eye out for a beautiful bird print to back this one?

January's bird is the American Gold Finch.  Here is Jen's blop post with the link to the pattern. Very cute little bird, and a lovely shade of yellow!  I decided to go with a black background for my blocks this year and am going to use Island Batik fabrics for this one as well since I just had more black added to my stash of goodies.  I have plenty of scraps to choose from for each month's color as well, so I know it'll make a great quilt.

January's block was a piece of cake - strip piecing, my favorite!  I did have one row that needed to be un-stitched and resewn because the corners didn't meet very well, but that was just me being in a rush to get it done. 

You still have today to get your block pattern for free and enter the link up to be eligible for a quarterly prize drawing!  Thanks Jen, for another great year of fun blocks!
