January Block of the Month

I know, its not even Christmas yet, but for those of you (like me) who are counting down the days until the holidays (and days off to sew!) why not get started on our January block! I knew the months leading up to the holidays were going to be BUSY, and I just love how this block looks, so we're using a tutorial by Caroline from SewCanShe, and making the #Hashtag block!

Instructions for the Hashtag block can be found here.

Please use the below colour palette to make your blocks: blues, greens and turquoises, in prints (so long as the main colours are represented) or solids. No whites allowed (which is VERY hard for me!)

Here are two that I've made for samples. Looking forward to seeing everyone's Hashtag blocks in January!
