maroon and lime green...



Here are color challenges #14 maroon and #15 lime green. The first block was trickier as I thought I disliked this color and wouldn't have enough to make it. The block ended up being like Victoria's, one of my favorites. Inspired by wine colored zinnias, I added hints of orange, pink, green and turquoise and a fair bit of black. The starter fabric is on the lower left with the added fabrics.







This block was lots of fun to make because I love lime green in every form. This color is cool and juicy just like its namesake. To my starter fabric on the lower left I added some yellow, teal, leaf green and some salmon as an accent. This series of color challenges has been so much fun. Can't believe I'll be posting my last one next week and hopefully the long lost orange block too...

There was an unexpected love with the maroon. It's deep dark and luscious! The tiny. It's if aqua jump out and the black sets it off so nicely! Your lime is pretty fabulous too... Hope to see your orange!

I really like how you found prints of the color of the week. Need to add this to my "to do list". I think I am going to be doing several of these quilts. That is until Victoria comes up with another idea.
