Playing with teal

Today I spent some time in The Quiltery playing catchup with this months teal and aqua blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler organised by Sew Scrappy

These are the five blocks so far. 

I was being so frugal that I misjudged the amount of fabric required for the Friendship star and had to piece the corner squares because I didn't have enough of my light.

And here are all my blocks together

Autumn means apple season.  We have baby fruit trees, just planted two winters ago.  These are our first apples.  Can't wait for the pears.


  1. some lovely new blocks to add to the collection.
    nothing better than a home grown fruit, your apple looks yummmm

  2. Pretty collection of little blocks.
    Yummy app;es :D

  3. Very pretty blocks. You will have a very nice rainbow quilt. Enjoy your apples.
