I finished this month’s block from the 2019 Monthly Color Block, by Patterns by Jen. I decided to play along and almost every month, I was able to finish before the end of the month. I used my Island Batik Scraps and am really pleased with the way this turned out.
Finishing this quilt will be my OMG (One Monthly Goal) in January.
I like the grey as it is a little more subtle than the black. I think not everyone is as in love with black as I am. This may wind up as a benefit quilt, so sometimes, I think black is not the best color for that. Both of these were done with Electric Quilt 8*. I brought my photographs in of my blocks, a quick and easy way for me to figure out what I may want to do for borders.
I am fascinated by the difference in colors. The picture on the left was on a grey, snowy day. The one on the right was at night in a room with a pretty high level LED lamp.
I am excited to share that I will be hosting some blocks for Jen next year. The colors are based on birds – how fun is that??? Sign up for her emails if you want to get it right in your mailbox on the 1st of the month. Here are some useful links:

Prizes are back and as usual, it will be a fun and stress free Block of the Month. One new thing this year are 3 background options (white, black or color of the month background). Think about it! I believe I will do the two shades of one color again, but, there may be an interesting way for me to incorporate one of the others, we shall see!
