Chocolate Mint

Who doesn't love chocolate mint ice cream?  Cool and refreshing on warm summer days.

Here are my completed blocks so far - in the weekly order of the challenge.  I would never imagine using these colors together, but they really look happy.

Those star bocks do look happy!! And it's a nice thing to see on this first day of summer - stars to keep the happy feelings of a beautiful day going all night long!!!!

Very minty green, nice choice of fabrics and a lovely range of blocks in all the colours. The ice-cream looks good too.

Mmmm...now I need some ice cream! Nice collection of shades of mint fabric. Love seeing all your blocks together! And I agree with what you said--wouldn't necessarily put those colors together without prompting, but boy do they look good!
