It’s time to deck the halls, but we are changing things up a bit. The December 2021 color is Olive Green! This is the final block in the 2021 Monthly Color Challenge, hosted by Patterns By Jen.
Olive Green Combos
Diving into my stash bins is my favorite part of the project. I don’t agonize over the choices but I do take time to audition lots of possibilities to make monochromatic blocks. Continuing my trend of making one 12″ block and two 6″ blocks, I settled on three fabric pairings.
Aren’t those dotty stripes fabulous?!? This is the large block.
Making things smaller just makes them cuter, don’t you agree?
Quarter Square Triangles
The process for constructing Quarter Square Triangles is similar to making two-at-a-time half-square triangles. (See this blog post for full instructions.)
Start with a half square triangle –
Layer the second half square triangle and sew the opposite diagonal –
Ta-Da! Lovely quarter-square triangles –
Full instructions are available from Patterns By Jen.
Will your holiday events feature a Charcuterie Board? I love the tangy green olives as a quick snack with crackers and cheese.
The best explanation I’ve heard for the popularity of Charcuterie Boards is that millenials grew up on Lunchables! LOL.
