I found the watermelon fabric at Joann's - about 1 1/3 yards for $5! Hooray for coupons! I don't buy novelty fabric very often, but that just seemed perfect to include in some July blocks. The other fat quarters came from one of my favorite LQS's. I looked in the batik section thinking that the variegated colors of batiks would create some great depth and texture in a block or two, and found the pretty pink, and a darker red. Since I make more than one of each of the different blocks for my RSC projects, I wanted to have a variety of choices available.
And I like how that turned out for my 16 patch blocks! They range from really low-key...
to a hot pink...
to bright and bold!
If you look closely, you'll catch a bit of lime green in there every now and then!
I also stitched up one more Monkey block to go with last week's new one -
I'm looking forward to seeing these new blocks laid out with my previously finished ones. I think they will be great additions to each collection. And now that I've cut into this new fabric, I've got scraps, right???!
