First up was an all green one for Britta:
I hope she likes it. She let me know she liked one I had done last round but I tweaked a couple fabrics to make them all green.
Sherri and Holly from Rebecca Mae Designs wanted fun bright modern fabrics:
I always struggle with the freedom of just fun bright fabrics...but here is the end result. I am happy with it and I hope they will be, also.
Lee from Didder's World asked for orange and pink. I picked out a whole other group of them and then last week went to a LQS on a shop hop and fell in love with three new pinks and oranges that absolutely brought a whole new level of appeal to the finished block. I could adore a whole quilt top made of these!
Funny thing is a couple of the prints were from last year's Western Washington Quilt Shop Hop and I passed it up last year because I didn't like the fabrics. Who would know how incredible I would think they are this year?
Therese requested Country / Reproduction fabrics. I had previously had her in the first round I participated in and struggled with this request then, also. This time, I consulted Cheran at Fiddlesticks Quilt Shop who led me to some fabrics by Jo Morton and I hope they are what Therese had in mind all along.
The pictorial print is Panier De Fleurs by French General and I thought the colors fit the 'fugly' fabrics that are represented in these fabrics to a tee. I know a lot of quilters are drawn to these reproductions but I am not among them. I sure hope they fit Therese style and appeal to her. I truly think this is what she will adore and hope I am on the right path here.
To finish up our hive's request the beekeeper, Shirley from Simple Sew, requested teal, orange, aqua and bright colors with the teal or orange as the center stripe.
The Kaffe Fassett fabric gave me a great palette to work with. I really like how it turned out.
I like to make a block for me each round but last round I didn't so this time I made two for me. My colors are Browns, Greens and Blues. I really like how it is all coming together with such a wide variety of colors and values amongst these three colors. Here are my two new blocks that I added to the collection this weekend.
Thanks so much, I love seeing each new arrival and am loving watching this Scrappy Trip Quilt grow each quarter.
