I love navy blue, don't you? It's this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color and I enjoyed working on my blocks this week. Here are my string blocks, a bit wrinkly.
And here are my two spiral blocks from the book Bright and Bold: Cozy Modern Quilts by Kim Schaefer. One block ends in a dark round, and one ends in a light neutral round. These blocks have been eating up my 1.5" light strings, hooray! They are also showing me that my quarter inch seam isn't terribly accurate, boo! Thank goodness for spray starch.
My Lurid Cat blocks feature the RSC color for the background and the cat applique is the opposite color on the color wheel. Last month happened to be orange, which is the opposite of blue, so I had lots of fun playing with both colors. I'm enjoying looking for my loudest, ugliest fabrics for the fat cats!
All these projects are getting near the end. I think October is the last month for a new RSC color. By the process of elimination, it must be dark green. After that, I think we use November and December to catch up and put the blocks together. I'm itching for some finishes! I'm also gathering ideas for next year's blocks.
I've also worked on non-RSC blocks this week, but the dark blue seems to follow me everywhere! These three blocks are for Kat's latest block drive for Covered in Love. She calls them "Grown Up Eye-Spy" blocks, with fun little prints in the centers. The colors for each block are three rounds of creams/tans and one of red, gold or navy blue. Fits right in with the RSC color. I love that tiny picnic table in the blue block.
And finally, here's my latest block from Tish's Fireburst Mystery quilt along. My fabric pull just happened to include this navy background with little paisleys. It was given to me by my DH's aunt, a lovely lady.
Are you playing along with RSC? How are your dark blues stitching up this month?
