'Rainbow Scrap Challenge'... I'm A Straggler!

Well this is a rarity for me... I believe I'm not usually one for posting on a Monday!
(or maybe my days all just blur, who knows?!)

 Even though my sewing for 'Rainbow Scrap Challenge' has been sporadic & I'm really behind the program, I'm going to hang in there with it because I do quite enjoy it when I finally get around to it.
 The colours for June (yes, I'm that far behind!) were teal & turquoise... which is a whole separate sort of challenge for someone who struggles to correctly identify those colours!
So I've pulled out my best rendition of the teals & turquoises... & because my knowledge is so dodgy, I may have added a few aquas in error.

The sewing of these granny blocks is easy & enjoyable, & it's fun to see the pile growing as colours are added each time.

My Colour Confusion Syndrome for the June task has resulted in me making double the number of Crosses & Losses blocks I'd normally make... I figured there's enough variation in the fabrics to make them all. These are great to make too, with attention being paid to sew the pieces in the right spot.

 I love the lattice-type print of this fabric

And these cute little fish too!

You all know that good old hexy's are never far from my hands... a few piles have been basted & readied for becoming brown-eyed flowers... I'm putting in a bit more of a push with this project, because once I've made all the flowers I need, it becomes something to continue on the sewing machine, thank god! I have too many hand-piecing & hand-stitching projects at the moment, it's actually annoying me😉

I hope you all have a fab week ahead & thanks for dropping by!

you are so right - teal & turquoise & aqua - they all merge beautifully - I guess its how much green is in it.

bit like pinks merging to purle

but they will all look great anyway!
