Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Blues

With two weekends of the month taken up with swim meets and family gatherings, it wasn't hard to get behind on sewing projects.  My blue blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge were definite victims of our busy schedule.  Thankfully, our evenings weren't busy this last week and I was able to get all 3 blue blocks stitched. 



The second "E" in coffee is now done. 





And both cups are finished.  Blue is my favorite color and the fabrics I used this month are a couple of my most favorite scraps. 

With the addition of the last "E", the layout up on the design wall no longer begs the question of my ability to spell (Every time My Guy walked in the sewing room he'd point out that coffee is spelled with 2 E's ).

I'm not sure the blue and gold cup is going to work, it stands out a bit since it doesn't use all brights.  I'll wait till all the other blocks are done, then decide if I need to remake that block using something else other than the gold.  This has been a fun project to work on.  I can't wait to see what scrap color is up for August.

  2. It's coming along nicely. I like the new block, if it dosen't work it can become a mug rug.

  10. Just adorable! I love the two blue prints and I hope the blue & gold gets to stay in the quilt. It looks OK in the photograph, but that's not the same as seeing it in person. Can't wait to see next month's colors!
