The years keep moving along. How is it already 2023? Time you say, yes! I welcome a new year for new projects, finishing some old projects and discovering some new quilt designs. Plus revisiting some designs I worked on last year. I spent a lot of time last year doing the Quilt Block Remixes. I will be participating in some but not as many. A new project has come to my attention and I’ve jumped on board. Patterns By Jen (Jen Shaffer) is doing a Monthly Color Challenge. This year her theme is Classic Cars. I fell in LOVE with her photo for the challenge!
How can one not be a part of this challenge?!? Jen’s introduction post to this year’s challenge can be found HERE. She has listed the colors for each month. I will be her guest designer in November and the color is green. The first month’s color is pink. The instructions for the block is free through January. January can be found HERE. Each successive month’s color will be announced in her blog and each block in only free for that month. If you miss a month, you can still get the block for a small fee. The guest designer for January is Raylee from Sunflower Stitcheries and Quilting. I’ve highlighted her business so you can read her blog post. I’m looking forward to all Jen’s colors, car colors and the cars she has chosen to represent each color!
Since I am giving this introduction, my tips are based on this challenge.
#1 – If you participate in this challenge, keep track of the blocks and follow along!
#2 – Collect your fabrics early.
#3 – Sign up for the Classic Cars 2023 Monthly Color Challenge Blocks to be delivered directly to your email.
#4 – Make your blocks as we go, then you’ll be ready to put it together as soon as it is revealed.
