2020 Monthly Color Challenge - February


Jen of Patterns By Jen is having a monthly color challenge, driven by the color of birds.  This month the bird is the Indigo Bunting.  A beautiful bird not found where I live west of the Rockies.  Every month there is a bird for the color inspiration and a free pattern for a 12.5" block.  I decided at the end of January to participate and did January's yellow block.

Here is my February block, from stash!!

Aren't the colors this month beautiful?  Loving the teal with the more royal/indigo blue.  I know there are purists that don't mix batik with cottons, but I have no problem putting them together.

I mix regular cottons and batiks all the time in my scrap quilts. Haven't had any problems doing that.

Wow, this is a loving combination of blues! And your piecing is right on point!! I mix batiks with cottons all the time, too, without any issues! :)

Hi Susan! Such pretty and bright colored fabrics you chose. They compliment each other so nicely. I love aqua and teal - this looks like it could splash right on my computer screen. And how great that it's right from your stash?! ~smile~ Roseanne

I love the blue!
I didn't realize that there were some who didn't mix the batik with cotton! I do that too!

I do like your particular fabric choices!

Those colors, and the block, are gorgeous. I use batiks with cottons too.

Oh what a beautiful block - I love your colour choices. I'm trying not to get tempted by too many new projects but this one looks fun! Thank you for your visits to my blog and your comments. For some reason they aren't coming through to my email so I sometimes miss on replying to you :-(
