2020 Monthly Color Challenge - April Blog Hop

Happy April! It's Mona here. March was a long month. I'm hoping that April will be better and here's hoping that this gorgeous block will bring some sunshine your way!

Patterns by Jen is spreading some gorgeous color throughout the world by hosting the 2020 Monthly Color Challenge. I have the privilege of sharing my block with you this month!

This year's color inspiration is bird's and the April bird is the honeycreeper (purple). You can get the pattern and all the other info on Jen's blog

I've decided to use Tula Pink Fairy Dust for my background fabric. I used one of the Free Spirit Essential solids (not sure it's still available, you can look for solid color yardage here).

Jen's patterns are written so well!

Love this square in a square!

Flying geese with no waste!

Half square triangles!

Final placement before piecing.

I love the way my block turned out - SO pretty! I haven't been able to do the earlier month's blocks - I need to make sure I go back and do them!

  1. Hi Mona! I just adore the background fabric you chose to use this month. Fairy Dust really complements the solid color purple fabric you chose and it pops quite nicely. I' going to have to look for FD - thanks for sharing the link. Stay healthy and safe. ~smile~ Roseanne
