I finally found one piece that I figured would be close enough - but had quite a time, trying to figure WHAT to put with it. I read earlier comments and saw the oooh's and ahhh's of the avocado lovers and what ya'll might pair it with...and I looked at my fabric again - still didn't 'feel it'. I found some sunflowers that I really liked and threw in some purple - it didn't move me, but I couldn't find anything I liked better. Decided I would use this:
Kinda blah, don't you think? I've already decided to make all my blocks play together so planned to bring back some of my other fabrics when I started to build. Sat down at the sewing machine and just before my pedal hit the medal - I Spied some scrappies (leftovers from a customers quilt
- which proves NOT always cleaning up after a project can be useful). I put together this little play group and brought back the scrolly yellow from last week:
Yes, the avocado was definitely getting lost in the mix (but shhh, don't tell, maybe no one will notice) - and now for the finished block - ta-da......
I must admit ~ I really like the way it turned out - it might even turn into my favorite block (and big improvement from last week - I didn't need my 'hammer'). But if it's ok with ya'll, from now on - I'll just enjoy my avocado with salsa & chips :) Thanks Ms.V for another fun color!
