My 2021 Patterns by Jen Monthly Color Challenge Quilt

For the past three years I have participated in a fun and low-stress quilt along. I’ve made some lovely sampler quilts along the way and I’ve been inspired by all of the other participants. This year I went with a smaller version and came up with a fun mini quilt. Here is my 2021 Patterns by Jen Monthly Color Challenge quilt.

This year Jen gave us a couple of size options, and since I’m running out of space, I decided to go with the smaller block. It makes a perfect wall hanging!

As you can see, I decided to pair a fabric in the color of the month with the same light gray and white background each month. I wanted to get the same look across the blocks. For the sashing I went with a white fabric with light gray dots and for the corner sashing squares I went with black.

I absolutely love the way my mini turned out! It’s a perfect wall hanging that doesn’t take up too much room.

Jen will be doing another mystery quilt along in 2022 so you definitely want to check it out. Her. color challenges are a great way to make a quilt at your own pace. You can find out more about her latest challenge here.
