Woohoo! I was in purple heaven when I made my December entry for the Patterns by Jen 2019 monthly color challenge. Finishing this block also meant that I did it…I finished all 12 blocks of the event.
Throughout the year, I had a couple of personal set backs, but I made sure to get the blocks done and I am so pleased with how they all turned out.
I stuck to my own challenge of only using batiks. As a result, every block has that deep saturated color that those fabrics offer.
An additional bonus was that, with the exception of one choice, I had enough fabric on hand so I did not have to make a lot of trips to the quilt store. That is my kind of quilt top.
Now I just have to set them together and finish off my top. I have a couple settings in mind, but Jen sent out the setting she designed and I love it. What I really need is to take a few hours and just make up my mind.
I had so much fun with this challenge. Normally, I don’t join a lot of them because I worry that I won’t have the time to finish them, but this one fit my schedule perfectly.

This months’ color prompt was purple and the flower inspiration was the crocus. I went with a striped dark purple fabric to mimic the stripes in crocus. I think it worked well.
Here are all of the blocks I made for this challenge. I can’t wait to finish the quilt and show it off to you.
