Been really busy with poodle agility training the last 10 days and my machine sat silent while I played student. Had an afternoon to put together the Mint and Aqua blocks. The Mint Green was the hardest because I just had a darker green that looks more like a Mint Plant vs. the Ice Cream. Decided to go with it, adding yellow, dark chocolate brown and several prints with milk chocolate brown and pinks with white. I want to try a lighter mint in another block but will have to visit the shop first.
I love Aqua and had just received some fabric I ordered recently. It has a more definite pattern that my other focus fabric and I hesitated to use it. Happy I did as I added some Blue Aboriginal pieces, several batiks in fuschia and purple and a solid darker turquoise. I will be using Aqua in future projects. It reminds me of warm Caribbean waters and white sand beaches.
The colors are actually much brighter than they appear in the photos.
