look at me all tech savvy- I made a "month marker" for instagram... woohoo! (I had no idea I even knew how to make one of these little gadgets... but it wasn't really that hard, and only took about 20 min. yay me!) feel free to grab the picture if you want to use it, too. and you can follow me on instagram as jlcap69. (I worked really hard to come up with such and original and clever name. ha!
this month's color is sea green. unfortunately, I (literally ) only have one piece of fabric that is sea green: Kona's sour apple. (and maybe that can't even technically be considered sea green either....)
first up for me this month was making my 16 patches with the Kona Indigo. above is mint, sour apple, breakers and turquoise. I love the way these colors work together.
last month I was singing the praises of the Kona indigo. and can I just say again that it's a fantastic color? it really makes these simple 16 patches something special. I'm pretty sure that this completed quilt will stay at my house when it's done...
these blocks actually look terrible in the picture; i'll probably take another... the colors are plum, pickle, (a super cool green color that really looks like a pickle!) cyan and teal.
I happened to do some more work on my pinwheel quilt this week (formerly known as my zig-zag quilt) and one of the colors that I did was the teal, so I get to show them off today, too! piecing the pinwheel quilt is actually one of my UFOs for 2017 projects. (#7) January seemed like a long month, so I had a few evenings to work on stuff before the new color was called for February.
