Quilt Block Patterns Quilting

December Monthly Color Challenge for the Patterns by Jen 2020 Event

I can’t believe that this year is almost over. It’s been a pleasure participating in the 2020 Patterns by Jen event. These are always so much fun to do. So without further ado, here is my December monthly color challenge quilt block. I love this months’ pattern!

If you haven’t guessed already, this months’ color prompt is red and the bird inspiration is the cardinal. I’m lucky in that every year I have a pair of nesting cardinals outside of the window where I write. I can watch them throughout the seasons.

This year I was fortunate enough to be one of the featured bloggers for this event. December is one of the the months that I am doing. It’s been a pleasure to participate, and if you follow my blog, you know that I make a block every month. I did last year too.

This month’s block kind of reminds me of Christmas candy. You know, the kind that comes individually wrapped that you are always sneaking a piece of.

I did two versions of the block, one in only the color of the month and the other with a white background. The white really makes the colors pop, although you really have to watch your sewing when using the white background. It’s a lot easier to see points that may not be as sharp as you like them to be.
