#2019 Monthly Color Challenge

December 1, 2019

Can you believe it is December already? Another year and decade is almost past! I've seen so many people with their decade pictures. When I look at mine I thought, wow, have I aged. I don't look like I'm in my twenties anymore and I am no longer a natural brunette! lol Yes, I have switched over to coloring my hair this year. Ugh! Onto things you would be more interested in... Jen's quilt along. 

 

When I saw the color was purple I thought how appropriate for December, it made me think of royalty. Royalty because we celebrate the King of Kings Son. 

 

This months flower is the Crocus. I didn't realize they are not only the first sign of spring, but they are actually a winter flower too. The more I researched this flower, I came across a few others that would bloom during the winter months in Ohio. Wouldn't it be nice to walk outside and see flowers blooming on a cold, snowy, wintry day? 

 

When I made my block I paid no attention to the actual flower, so I didn't realize my pastel purples really suited it. This block was pretty straight forward and easy to do. I would suggest paying close attention to Jen's pressing directions. If you do each piece will perfectly nest and you will have crisp corners. I love blocks that are like that!

I've already completed my quilt top and I cannot wait to show it to you! This has been a fun challenge and I look forward to next years!

 

A lot is happening in December. Here are just a few things: 

-The Tribes of Israel quilt along wraps up. I cannot wait to share my finished quilt with you! I love it. 

-Information about the Diary of a Mystery Quilt, Second Edition will be shared. Charisma Horton and I have paired up for this patriotic mystery quilt. If you love donating quilts to good causes, this one is appropriate for Quilts of Valor! 

- Lastly, I am participating in Cheryl Slebota's 31 Day Blog Challenge. I hope you will follow along this journey with myself and fellow quilt bloggers.

 

Goodness that was a lot to fit into one post... I promise they all won't be this long! 

 

Happy December & Happy Quilting!
