Of course, a question that came up right away for me was "What's the difference between aqua, turquoise, and teal?" A quick Google search led me to this image from Janet Carr at thisbugslife, and an interesting discussion about just that very topic!
Of course, for my purposes, I think a mix of these colors will work, and I'm not going to get too worried about the details!
Pretty quickly, I realized that my Tula Pink Prince Charming scraps, so generously shared with me by Cynthia from Quilting is More Fun than Housework, are the exact right mix of blues tending toward aqua, and even a little lime green! And lucky for me, I still have some pieces that are the perfect length and width for some 16 patch blocks!
Meanwhile, I also stitched up some Monkey Wrench blocks to add to my collection.
Just for fun, my husband got out the mirage lens for his fancy camera and took a picture of my monkey blocks. Love it!
And now I'm off to sew a few 16 patches! Tomorrow I'll be linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Quilters for ScrapHappy Saturday to get some more aqua and lime green inspiration!
