I kept feeling drawn to sugary sweet, bubblegum-y colors for this. Here's what I ended up using:
And my made fabric:
And my block:
I think it really has that sugary sweet bubblegum feeling to it. I especially like it with the lime green and the yellow dotted print. Pink is not usually a huge favorite of mine (I just feel like it gets overused for little girls, but that's another soapbox for another day). However I really like all the black, white and pink blocks that others made, and I like how easily it works with a variety of colors in general. I think I may have to overcome my prejudice against it and try a quilt that is primarily pink.
The color mint green has another flavor connotation, too...check out the key lime pie custard I ate before sewing my block tonight!
With that "inspiration" in my belly, I pulled out these fabrics:
I found the third fabric and loved the orangey-red paired with the mint and sage greens, so I looked for that color in my stash. Only after finishing the block did I realize that its colors were similar to my tomato red block!
And here's my made fabric:
And my block:
I was not expecting to pair the orangey-red with mint, but I liked how the warm and cool complemented each other. I'm not usually a big pastel fan, but throughout this color challenge I'm seeing how pastels can be paired with brighter colors for interesting impact.
Now off to dig out some aquas!
