2020 Monthly Color Challenge – January Block
Are you ready? The New Year is here whether you are ready or not. While it may seem like just another turn of the calendar page, we are actually starting a new decade. There’s also a new 2020 Monthly Color Challenge to start out this new January.
January Monthly Color – Yellow
The colors we selected for the whole year was shared back in December, but I’ll bet you didn’t remember that yellow is the color up first. I just adore this fabric which is called Crayola Kaleidoscope and Jen’s inspiration is the American Golden Finch. This birdie features these same two colors plus a bit of neutral white. Gorgeous isn’t it?!
January Yellow Piecing
Sue started cutting the necessary pieces for me and it was time to start sewing some four-patch blocks. This involved some strip sewing, more cutting and more sewing.

Here is our first monthly color challenge block for 2020 in a rather simple yet striking layout.
No one can be thinking of a bumblebee after seeing the proud finch on Jen’s website. Check out her website for more details and also to sign up to receive monthly notifications for the pattern.
