Many of you know of my love for teals and blues. Last week I shared the in-progress pics of a sweet baby quilt made with my favorite hues – teals and blues.
I wasn’t sold on the placement of some of the triangles so I made a few adjustments and now I LOVE it! The heart piece stands out a bit more and I made it more symmetrical and added more of the solids. I did have to stop and get more yardage of those solids. The dark blue in this photo is actually a deep teal and is just gorgeous. Here’s a close-up of the sweet snails and dragonfly prints.
After that I took my teal love and placed it in the Rhoda Ruth Block Challenge. The Robert Kaufman Quilting Blog – Swatch and Stitch – is hosting a fabric challenge using Kona solids or Essex linen. Make the Genny and Ruth block using those fabrics and post on Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #RhodaRuthBlockChallenge by the morning of August 31st. Here’s my block of teals with a touch of grey. I like how it shimmers. Now I need to figure out what to do with it. It could make a great throw pillow or I could build a whole quilt around it. So many options……..
No white, black, grey, or tan cars for me. It’s this really cool blue color which could be seen better if it hadn’t been overcast and rainy all day. There’s lots of room in the back for fabric except now I have a car payment so I will be cutting back on those purchases for a little bit.
Before that purchase I was at JoAnn’s picking up the solids and I saw this sewing machine print that will be perfect for my ironing board. Now I just need to find the perfect tutorial to get it done. I think I already have one downloaded but I will have to double check that.
