December Monthly Color OMG Project
It’s time for our December OMG or one monthly goal project to be announced. How oh how did it get to be December already? The last OMG for 2019, and it should be a good one don’t you think? We are so very thankful that Patty at Elm Street Quilts hosts a linkup party each month. Her monthly linkup has really inspired us to finish a different project each month. This month we’re going to focus on the monthly challenge color blocks and get them into a quilt top.
December OMG Monthly Color Blocks
Jen at PBJ (no, not peanut butter & jelly) or Patterns by Jen has hosted a 2019 Monthly Color Challenge. We joined in at the beginning of 2019 and played along each and every month.
Above are the first six of the monthly blocks, and you can see there is a different color for each. Jen focused on flowers for her inspiration, such as the carnation and the marigold. This was so much fun that we will be playing along in 2020 – more details will be released later this month that may have you wanting to play as well.
December Wrap Up
Here are five of the additional blocks that will be included in the quilt top.
Fittingly enough, the crocus or purple is the final color for 2019. I find it fitting mostly because that color always makes me think of my mother. Her name was Violet and that also was her favorite color, plus December was her birthday month. A nice deep, rich purple is our choice for the block. Once Jen released the pattern on the first of the month we headed back to start sewing it.
To Sash or Not to Sash?
Do we want to add a sashing between each block and maybe even a cornerstone or two? Who knows – we will all have to wait to see how it turns out. I’m hoping to have it finished early since we will be hosting TGIFF (Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday) on December 20th.
