Thirty days hath September….allegedly….and I’d love to know where they went! We’ve been laid low by a nasty virus and it’s taken a while to get back on our feet. Today I’m going to share the colour schemes that everyone has chosen for their patchwork blocks. It’s a lovely selection.
Abi ~ Creating paper Dreams ~ Neutral with pops of colour
Alexa ~ Trimming the Sails ~ Peachy shades
Alison ~ Life in the Slow Lane ~ Teal/turquoise/cream
Amy ~ Over at Our Place ~ Seaside colours, washed and worn: cream, kraft, pale blue, muted denim Plain fabrics, stripes or spots
Beverly ~ BE Glorious ~ Blues, greens (think Caribbean shades) and orange
Deb ~ Paper Turtle ~ Bright colours
Deb ~ Debs World ~ Spring time colours: pinks, blues and greens
Fiona (me!) ~ Staring at the Sea ~ Anything goes
Jacky ~ Scrappy Jacky ~ Rust/terracotta and greens, but not lime green
Jo ~ Buckingham’s Palace ~ Blue and Yellow with white/cream
Jo ~ Sugar and Scrap ~ Pinks and turquoise
Sian ~ From High in the Sky ~ Creams, whites, tans and linens
As I said in the email, we’ll keep the posting order alphabetical, exactly as it appears here. Abi will be the recipient for this month and Alexa in November. We’ll take a break in December, I’m sure we’ll all have enough going on then. Resuming in January with Alison and Amy will be Miss February.
There are quite a few useful links and tutorials in these two posts from last year. I’ll be back on Monday with tutorials for a basic nine patch and four patch. Those I have found online all involve rotary cutting, which I’m assuming beginner quilters will not have the equipment for. Don’t worry they can be made using scissors instead.
If you’ve already started, just remember your finished block must measure 6.5” no matter what design you’ve chosen to make. Have fun with it.
