Is anyone else melting? Good golly, it's hot. Apparently something like 160 million of us here in the US are experiencing the same heat wave. I wish that just touching these cool aqua scraps would cool a person off, but no, it doesn't work that way. Thank goodness we get to make cool things from them, right?
Today I just want to share an update on my aqua RSC projects. Aqua is a great color and it was fun to work with these pieces. True fact: the main decorative color in my house is aqua, including my kitchen. It's both calming and invigorating, depending on the light. And somehow it looks different every time I look at it.
On to the projects! Let's start with the hollow 9-patches:
I stopped at ten of these little blocks, but it was difficult. They're just so cute!
Next up are the patchwork scrap stars:
This month I used a black and white print scrap and a bright floral scrap for the stars. They kind of blend in this picture, but in person they look great.
Finally, there are the aqua galaxy stars:
The quest for perfect centers continues, as you can see. A better person than me might remake some of them, but I think they're good enough. I just like the colors against the dark blues.
So that's this month's progress! I feel like things are moving along pretty well. All progress is good, right?
Now it's time for the scrap giveaway for this month! If you recall, for this year I'm giving away the remaining scraps of each color after I finish the projects for the month. Here's what I have to give away for this month:
There are a lot of scraps here, and some pieces are pretty big, but some of them are fairly small as well. Who really knows what's here? I do know that it's more than a pound of fabric. I'm also including an unopened small spool of aqua Aurifil thread and a handful of both 2-inch and 1-1/2 inch squares.
This giveaway is now closed! Thanks to all!
Everybody drink lots of water and stay cool! And if you're in Canada, a happy Canada Day on Sunday!
