July Monthly Color Challenge

>> Tuesday, July 14, 2020

The color for this month's challenge is rust. Not a color I collect in my stash, but I did manage to play within the guidelines to create my block this month.

I found this fabric in my stash that I'm sure my dad bought for me. I love the pineapples and the pink! I realized that I probably pulled this fabric at the beginning of the year because of the birds.

I decided to try my hand at fussycutting the pair of birds for the center block. Not bad on my second try ;)

For the rest of the dark rust pieces I intentionally avoided cutting out distinct shapes so that when the block was together it would just look like a print. I have some fabric leftover if I really want to use a pineapple another time - in fact, I think my dad bought me this fabric in the blue colorway too!

The light rust fabric I've had forever. I remember using it as a sashing fabric for a quilt my sister and I made my parents many years ago (not even sure it's on the blog!) Happy to use up more of it and, maybe not, surprised to find I have some left. It's one of  'those' fabrics that never seems to run out.

You can also check out the feature bloggers this month to see any tips they offer for making the block.

Complete your block by the end of the month and add it to Jen's linkup to be in the running for a whole bunch of great prizes! Prizes are awarded quarterly so this month starts a new round. You can see the prizes and sponsors at Jen's monthly post here.

With Joy,
