So Scrappy announced the Rainbow Scrap colors of the month as aqua and turquoise.
I think my blocks are more of a teal since the blues have a green tinge to them, but they look good:
I am following a two self-imposed rules.
I intend to use scraps only; I don’t want to cut into yardage for these blocks.
I am also using a dark, medium and light version of the color of the month. This is so I can play with value. This gives me the opportunity to see how the blocks differ depending upon where the value is placed. Hopefully, I am learning how to look at a block in different ways.
As blocks are added, I am getting excited about the Squared Away Sampler!
I am considering an on point setting with narrow sashing and cornerstones, but haven’t made up my mind yet. I will wait and see what So Scrappy and The Academic Quilter have in store for us.
I will be linking up with So Scrappy. Check out the link and see what others have done with pink and rose this month!
If you would like to participate in the RSC18 Squared Away Sampler project click on the link to read all about it. You can also visit The Academic Quilter for great tutorials on making the blocks. No need to make the 5″ block size that I am making. Perhaps you want to make a 20″ block or something in between!
Learn about a variety of blocks, use those scraps and have fun!
How about a stroll in the garden?
