Monthly Color Challenge March 2020

Thank you to Jen at Patterns by Jen for the monthly color and block challenge!  This month's color was my favorite color (to not use), orange!

The bird inspiration is the oriole, which is a beautiful bird.  In the last 4 months, I have been using so much orange...is someone trying to get me to like it??

I used a couple of fat quarters I was given by my Shoebox Swap partner (thank you!!) or I would not have had any orange to use.

I received
I like the hand of this fabric, but I didn't like this:

Every piece of this beautiful fabric was stained by the tape they used to create the rolls in the box.  I'll still use the fabric, but I'll be cutting around the 3" by 1/2" stains.  I did contact the maker and they said I should return it to the fabric shop I bought it from.  Since it was a gift from out of state, that won't work.  I can't say their response won't color my purchases in the future.

Here is my March block, along with January and February blocks (I love how they look together):

Thanks again, Jen!!!

I think this quilt is going to be stunning when it is finished. I can't wait to see all the colours together. I love bright quilts. Such a shame that the material was marked with the tape I have had instances of that too and it always seems to be right in the middle of the fabric. Glad you were able to work around it.

Happy sewing and keep safe.

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

Your blocks are so pretty! I really like that dark orange fabric. What a shame about that tape stain, though! I hope they think about their packaging choices.
