STILL BLUE AND BROWN – AND A SURPRISE
This week I finally caught up with my RSC16 Twinkle Star blocks by finishing the blue one. It did not get its turn in January, so better late than never. It almost was never due to my frustration. For the second time I cut the half triangles from the wrong fabric instead of the white! Don’t know where my brain was. I’m happy with the scrappy pieces I found, especially the center block with the purple flowers.
Here is the first star I did in brown and pink batiks. The center was a nice fussy cut find from a layer cake piece of batik.
For the Modern HST Sampler blocks given by Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts, I used the RSC16 colors again. These are 12.5-inch blocks and there are two given each month. So I get extra chances to play with Angela’s lovely color choices.
This is number three of the Modern HST Sampler blocks called Lantern. The example showed a white center block, but I added the warm ‘light’ in the lantern, one of my favorite batik pieces. I love the swirling blend of the colors.
On Monday the fourth Modern HST Sampler block will be released. Each one is designed to be a little more challenging than the last, so I should be very comfortable with HSTs by December.
NEWS FLASH: Just after I finished the above post, I found a package delivery outside my door from Fat Quarter Shop. This had to be an exception to my fabric fast. I have been looking at the Note To Self line from Henry Glass since it came out. I love the Fruits of the Spirit named on the apples in the design.
Here are two of the Apple color prints and a red flower piece from the line. These were all half price on the 24-hour Flash Sale. The Black and White Text from Ella Blue was also on sale. Could you resist? There are a couple of others you have to wait until next week to see.
I hope all of you have a great quilting week. I link up with RSC16 at soscrappy and Modern HST Sampler at Blossom Heart Quilts.
