The Spicy Colour Challenge is from Patterns by Jen. Each month she has a unique block based on the Spice of the month. The pattern is free for the month … after the month is over, you can purchase the month’s block for a small fee … OR you can purchase the entire pattern from Jen!
October’s spice is SAGE.
Sage is a plant that I have grown in my garden for years! Here in the Pacific Wet Coast (south western British Columbia) it grows easily. I use it mostly for poultry dishes … especially stuffing for chicken and turkey. YUM!!! I don’t need to dry or freeze it, because even in the winter it’s ready for picking!
Here is my Sage block – made with Island Batik fabrics!
And a picture of all 11 blocks … waiting for the last 2 blocks to assemble into a beautiful quilt!

My Sage Quilts
Both of these are quilts made with Island Batik fabrics. The one on the left was made for a Storm at Sea challenge and you can read about it HERE. The one on the right was made recently for a Gadget Blog hop and you can read about it HERE. Both quilts use Hobbs batting and are pieced either on my Featherweight or my Janome M7 and are quilted on my domestic Janome M7.
