Little Bits of Turquoise

I realized this week that I don't really have a lot of aqua/turquoise scraps left.  Turquoise is the smallest pile in my fat quarter shelves, too.  Good thing I could still pull together a few blocks with the little bits I do have!

I finished up the Tiny Rails block in turquoise that I started working on last week -


I had to dig into my solids drawer for this week's Tiny Tuesday block!   This photo really makes the scraps I picked look blue - they definitely look more blue-green in real life.

Thanks, Mari, at the Academic Quilter, for this fun pinwheel block!  I really enjoyed making it!

This month's three Tiny Tuesday blocks - 


My main focus this week has been to move my Hands2Help quilt for Jack's Basket along, and it's almost done!

Some "S Curve" quilting on a turquoise block - 


The binding is made and ready to be sewn on, too.


But first, a quick weekend away to visit our oldest son for his birthday!  Happy Easter, everyone!

Aqua/turquoise is just such a happy color! There's quite a bit in your JB quilt. Did you plan it that way? :)

Mari said...

Happy Easter to you, too! Your blocks look great!

Every time I see another block added to your Tiny Rails collection I want to start my own collection. AQUA is no exception! Honestly, it probably amped up the urge. :o))

So many pretty blocks! You have lots of lovely aqua/turquoise fabrics.

I am finding I have more blue and green than aqua or turquoise in my scraps. I even pulled out a bin of older scraps. My month shall be "shades of blue and green." Your blocks are looking good. You are sew accomplished ... :) Pat

Aqua and white is so refreshing. Great job!

Linda said...

My favorite colors are turquoise and aquas and I have too many in my stash and scraps!
Your quilting on the H2H quilt looks great.
Enjoy your trip and have a wonderful Easter weekend!
