As part of the course materials for the For the Love of Sewing Skill Builder, we were given a Block Coloring Worksheet for the complete quilt layout. It was a little tricky to try and fill in every white space, especially since my colored pencils don’t do justice to the final fabric selections, but here is my attempt at a color layout. And view my fabric color selection photo here.
And again, my Kona Solids color selections are:
Black and White as needed
I would love to know what you think – let me know in the comments below!
I have completed the first few steps of the For the Love of Sewing Skill Builder project, but was stuck on the “select your colors” task. I was waiting to get the 28 new Kona Solids colors to make my final selection. Unfortunately they were out of one of the colors when I ordered last week, but I don’t think I’ll be using Punch in this project.
So… My color selections for the For the Love of Sewing Skill Builder Block of the Month are:
With Black and White pops added as needed
I’m excited to see how the colors come together with each block, and for the overall finished product!

I just found out about a new Block of the Month for 2014 – a Skill Builder quilt called For the Love of Sewing. I know… I have many Block of the Month projects to catch up on and finish, but this one is appealing to me – it’s fresh and modern, and I love the solid colors used. A definite sign-up for this year!
The Skill Builder Block of the Month course is in an online setting with access to the classroom for the 2 new lessons each month, PDF downloads, step-by-step instruction for the 15 blocks to complete the quilt, and more. The yardage information shows the requirements by color – you can easily change the colors if you so desire, and plan for the colors and quantities in advance – I know my quilt is screaming for lime green!
I hope you will join me in signing up for this course and share your progress along the way. This week I plan to get back to the sewing machine and finish several pieces in progress – that will make room to start some new projects!
