RSC18 October

Dark green and sage are the colors for the month of October announced by So Scrappy and The Academic Quilter.

I made three Dewey Dream blocks in the 5″ size for the Squared Away Sampler.  I reversed the green and neutral in one of the blocks just to have a visual of how the block would look when moving value around.  Now that I see it, my personal preference is having a dark value for what I am calling the background.  

For some reason, the camera didn’t pick up the green color very well; it isn’t that dark!

If you would like to make the Squared Away Sampler, you can visit The Academic Quilter for great tutorials on making all of the blocks.  

Here are all of my blocks together:

If I decide to set these blocks on point, I shall be making one more block, perhaps a brown one.  I am holding off on my decision (although I do have something in mind) until I see what The Academic Quilter suggests for settings.

I will be linking up with So Scrappy.  Check out the link and see what others are doing with dark green and sage this month!

  2. Very nice Laura. I only used 25 blocks. There were 3 that I did not like the block and 2 that just did not need to be in there! I had not thought to make 2 more and make it larger, but my York came out as 86 x 99 and I did not want another big quilt. You will enjoy putting the quilt together! Hugs, know you are working today – hope it goes fast so you can get back to sewing!

    • Thanks, Nanette! I still think that I will make an additional block, set the blocks on point (I liked them that way from the beginning), and separate them with sashing. So…more to do. This might be next month’s goal.
