My Teal Block for my Bottled Rainbow Quilt is finished!
This block was a bit challenge for me! Mostly because I just didn't have the scraps. Back when we "bottled our rainbows" the pieces I had considered teal all had the right color but also many others? After sticking so closely to my kona solid color for the other blocks I had to break my rule this time and cut into some stashed fabrics. My new 1001 Peeps!
I experimented with some new shapes for this, as well. I'm using a Mandala inspired theme for each block, starting out with one center shape to work from. I sort-of mimicked the hexagon shape in the 1001 Peeps print for this and then I used my new GO! Baby fabric cutter and my favorite flower die to help me with some more tricky shapes. It worked!!!
Zig-zag stitching around the really curvy pieces was a little tricky, too -- it definitely wasn't easy!
Look matching nails!
My Teal Block makes four finished! I've made room in my studio closet for all of them.
Here you can see the others -- my Pumpkin Petals, my Buttercup Sunburst, and my Ruby Love birds.
How about you -- what are you working on these days? I'd love to see!
