Oh Scrap! : My Garden Growns
This week, I worked on finishing up my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks for my garden quilt. My bee block didn't quite turn out like I wanted it to. The wings were supposed to be a bit more forward and I was hoping it would look a bit more yellow. I was planning on redoing it. But after I slept on it, I decided to accept its imperfections.
I also wanted a sunflower bloom to fit over my green sprout blocks made last year. I had quite a few designs pinned but I chose to go with a favorite block of mine - Rolling Stone. After completing this happy block, I think I am going to make this one of my next RSC blocks. There are lots of options for value placement - giving each bloom a unique look.
So many of you gave me some great ideas for yellow blocks but I think I am going to quit here with just these three blocks. I do have to keep this quilt to a reasonable size!
March will be here soon and we will be moving to a new color.
I am hoping for purple, pink or lime green. I think I need those colors for all three of my RSC quilts.
