WATER COLORS EVERYWHERE
This week was really fun for me working with aqua, since it is my favorite color. Last week I just barely got any done at all, but here is the finished block. A couple of smart quilters knew which block I had shown partially finished.
Now you all know it, the Folded Box block, my current favorite.
I got busy with my Geese Migration blocks for February and worked out a really streamlined process. I cut all the pieces first, then arranged and rearranged both blocks before any stitching. It was very easy to piece them. For the flip triangles I folded and pressed the blocks on the diagonal, very easy and accurate to stitch on the rectangles.
Here are the lighter aqua and the darker turquoise blocks. The shades and tints were much easier to place than the January purple blocks.
I’m also working on finishing a couple more Project Linus quilts, plenty to keep me busy. One is my top made of my RSC16 16-patch blocks. I added another block to finish the square and need to make it a bit bigger by adding more 4-patches or borders.
I found a bright red and white child’s print in my stash for the backing, perfect for this I Spy quilt.
The temperature hit 40 degrees today and I went grocery shopping, a lovely end to the week. I’m anxious to see what all the rest of you did with this lovely color this week.
