February do.good stitches blocks

So, it's my turn to host the wonderful do.good stitches nurture circle. We've done several complex and intricate blocks in the last six months, so I thought I'd go basic. I made all 4 blocks in just under an hour. 

This month's block is a basic 16-patch, measuring 8.5" unfinished. I'm asking for two warm blocks and two cool blocks. Each block is made up of 16- 2.5" squares in a rough gradient of warm or cool colors. You can mix solids and prints, as long as the prints read a single color. We're sticking with the basic ROYGBIV, but you can mix in some red-orange, lime green, Aqua, etc. if it works with your gradient. I'd like seams pressed open, so it might help to make your stitch length a little smaller than your usual piecing stitch length. Feel free to email me if you have questions. Happy sewing!
