March Blog Hop - #2019MonthlyColorChallenge

Hi everyone - it's Mona here with something fun!
Jen over at Patterns by Jen is having her second annual monthly color challenge. What is this? Jen shares a new block pattern every month with a color theme. 2019's theme is based on flowers. How fun!

I made the January and February blocks - you can see them on my Instagram page.

For March, the color theme is based on Love in a Mist (Navy Blue). I was really excited about that since blue is one of my favorite colors. I used a navy Grunge by Basic Grey for Moda. I also used a blue heart fabric from The Good Life line by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. (If you're shopping for fabric, check out my post on "Saving Money on Fabric & Sewing Supplies".)

The pattern is written really well. I noticed when assembling my block that my heart fabric was a directional fabric. In order to get the hearts going the same direction in the whole block, I needed to make one change to the pattern: When making your HST's, mark each of the directional fabrics on opposite diagonals. That will allow you to get everything pointing in the same direction!
(My dog Kemper really wants to be famous!)
You can get the March pattern and all the information on this sew-along at Patterns by Jen.

If you make this block, be sure to post a picture on Instagram and tag me (@mona.phelps). Also, make sure you use #2019MonthlyColorChallenge so that everyone will see it - and you can get inspiration from there as well!
