I decided to do some blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Green is the colour of the month for the month of May, so I chose to do the Crossroads Block.
I used all dark greens in this block. That way, if I need to make an extra block or two I can make a light green one and they will look different.
Flushed with success, I made a purple Crossroads block. It was the only RSC block which I didn't manage to make last month before we left for overseas.
In this photo, all the fabrics have a distinctly blue tinge. They are however, very purple, and the light squares are white.
Yesterday was my morning at Friday Quilters. With dozens of things that I could have done, I needed to pick up something that didn't need planning to take with me. So I grabbed these fabrics and made up 2 laundry bags for Aussie Hero Quilts.
They came together quickly because I had done all the prep work. This lot look blue as well! You probably can't see it very well, but the one on the left has hundreds of little black skeletons on a yellow gold background. I worried a little with these as the cord channel and the surround on the name block are purple on both bags. I hope they aren't seen as too feminine, but they are a good match for the main fabrics and pick out an existing colour in both bags.
Linking up with Angela at SoScrappy for the RSC linky party. Why not go and take a look at what the others have created this week?
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
