August 2022 Patterns By Jen Monthly Color Challenge - Cinnamon
I hope you have enjoyed the first half of the year of quilt blocks shared with us from Patterns By Jen for the 2022 Monthly Color Challenge. There are a few things I have been able to squeeze time in for working on during those first 6 months. One of those will be featured in another post later this year. The others are my Monthly Color Challenge quilt blocks for this month, which is cinnamon, and November (stay tuned!)
Bloggers were given the option to make a 6 inch block, 12 inch block, or both, which is the option I chose. The colors assigned to "cinnamon" varies greatly. They can be found in oranges, reds, and browns. This made choosing fabric a bit difficult. I was able to find a patterned line of fabric that had colors which met the needs for both challenge months I am blogging for this year. Yay!!
Fat Cat from Windham Fabrics is that perfect fit.
The above three photos show progress on quilting, my first-time getting quilting completed using the stippling foot with a nice meander to show for the efforts. Figuring out the tension was key. Now to get that bigger machine for tackling those large projects sitting in my WIP stash.
Make sure you check out the other blogger's posts for even more quilty inspiration:
I am going to spend some time in my garden and tackle finishing up a few surprises for future blog posts. Thank you for reading and keep on quilting!
