    Solstice Challenge by Pat Sloan

    Hello everyone! I think this is going to be the perfect spot to enjoy and share our Solstice CHallenge blocks!
    So even if you already shared somewhere else, share it again here!
    I will start with my blocks, 1 and 2, I want to tell a tale of seasons so right now I'm calling me "Winter Tales"

    Good Morning all. I originally started with purple and black, but have changed it up to greys and yellows. I will add a splash of blue through out the blocks to add some additional color. But I am much happier with new color way.

          Thanks! I looked through most of the blocks and there are some pretty wild combinations of fabric. That's why I never start these things. I don't want to be all over the place. lol

            Here are mine again. I used Pat's suggestion and pulled out a fat quarter bundle. Hopefully adding the plain fabric will stretch it far enough for all the blocks.

            Isn't it fun to see everyone's fabric choices.

              Here are my blocks. I have started a few block of the months, but get bored waiting for the next block and forget to go back to it. I am hoping that with them coming weekly, I will stick with it.

                This looks interesting and nice you can pick your own colorway or just go crazy. I can't make myself go to wild but may just pick a color that I have a lot of like blues right now and then pair it with a constant.
                Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

                  Love your color combinations ladies! I really cannot wait for Wednesday
                  I've realized that a monthly BOM for me it's too much (wait for a block and another), the SPlendid Sampler is overwhelming since it's twice a week and so many embroidery blocks... but this one weekly is thrilling

                    Thank you! I am really looking forward to the next block.

                    I agree with you, the monthly one was just way too long, but a weekly one might just be up my alley. And apparently a bunch of other quilters too. Loving it!

                        Carah, we are barely two blocks "in" and I really hope you will enjoy this one. You will be caught up in no time. Looking forward to tomorrow for the block #3.

                              Juliet, it was good to see your name too! I am looking forward to getting started on this. So many projects going these days. I am looking forward to snow days just to play.

                              Magicquilts thanks for the welcome **waves**, I think this will be fun as well as working on new skills. I think mine will be scrappy as I am working to use up some left overs.
