RSC16 week 28

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT

With the hot weather upon us, using these watermelon colors seems to be keeping me cool, at least in my mind.  The luscious colors are really dripping with cool.  
Each month I seem to be starting off with my sailboats because, truthfully, they are the fastest to make.   This is one where I found the HSTs already made from some other project, so it almost felt like cheating.  On the other hand I don’t have a Parts Deptartment full of orphan blocks, like Magpie Sue’s.  

I really had a good time making this 16-patch block.  My scrap box of rose, pink and lime is not very full this month, so I dithered around until I came across a bunch of polka dot pink charm squares.  I’ve never been fond of them, but for this block they made it so playful I could not resist.  I think it’s now my favorite 16-patch.

These dots also remind me of watermelon seeds, the little white ones.  I even found some wonky green melons.

This week I also entered the OMG July Monthly goal at Red Letter Quilts, which is to quilt and bind my two Pinwheel Row quilts.  So that is my major undertaking for now.  I’m using my walking foot to do a mix of straight and wavy lines (It’s not always clear which is which.)  

For my Twinkler star I found some gorgeous flowers like the full blown rose, so that will be my focal point.  

My wish for all of you dear friends is a fun and satisfying week, whatever that includes.

  1. Those polka dot pinks are perfect for this month's blocks! Thanks for reminding me that we could call the very dark pink a rose color. I've been including fabric that is very close to red (to get some dark contrast), but now I can call it rose!

  2. Those pink polka dots are perfect! Such a lively block you've made! And I can't wait to see that Twinkler – I'm not even a big fan of pink and I think your colors look gorgeous!
