This second of my two RSC 2016 projects requires six blocks which run from lights to darks. So not only am I playing with colour, I am also playing with value. It's been a good opportunity to experiment and learn. The next morning I ended up at this point:
Sigh. She HAS to test out any new projects and new to her fabric, and get into a photo, any photo. Try again:
Pay attention to the browns there for later.
A little later that morning on my pibble-less (sniff) walk, I walked along the Chrysler Canada Greenway, which is a part of the Trans Canada Trail.
Got home and between a few (read huge) events on Thursday and Friday, mainly on Friday, (see this post for details), I sewed these:
Wanna see them all so far?
I'm liking it! Technically the purple should be above the orange, but I wasn't about to move everything down (none of the blocks are sewn together) in order to do that. I still have to do the January blue with a bit of purple row and the February brown with a pop of pink row. This second project sort of happened in Florida in March...another DREAMI moment. Drop Everything And Make It. Do you get those?
I'm looking forward to working with June's colours: blue leaning toward aqua with a pop of lime green.
One of the huge events I referred to is that I'm also working with some very specific fabrics in June on another project, which leads nicely into my OMG goal for June. This is going to come completely out of left field, and it is totally a DREAMI event. If you missed yesterday's post, you won't know that EEEEEEP!!! There is a new button on my sidebar...I got chosen to be the June designer for Henry Glass Fabrics Desire to Inspire challenge!! I am just so über-excited I can hardly stand it! There should be some lake-themed yardage arriving shortly for me to delve into and create some fabulous stuff by the end of June.
