Yesterday was a nice rainy day to sit in my sewing room and make more blocks for Country Charmer. I'm trying to incorporate lots of different colors for variety and interest.
Those of you in the Country Charmer Quilt Along know that some blocks go together easier than others when it comes to selecting the colors. I've been trying to work with teal blues in this quilt. Teal is such a difficult color to find. Just like good plaids, whenever I see a nice teal blue fabric, I buy it! My stash is getting low in the teal department.
I wanted to make a 'lighter' block for the mix and I came up with this combination. I'll most likely make a couple of more blocks that are lighter, just so this one doesn't stand out in the crowd with a big bullseye on it.
Here's a collage of the blocks without the sashing. The sashing will make the blocks stand on their own two feet and set them apart.
My goal is to have this quilt finished in time for the Amador Valley Quilt Show April 20th & 21st in Pleasanton, CA. I'm going to have a booth at the show for the first time! My sister Gail is going to help me 'woman' the booth. So mark your calendars and plan on spending the day at the show and stop by my booth and say hello. The guild always puts on a great, inspirational show. Alex Anderson is going to be the featured artist. It doesn't get much better than this folks!
Enjoy your day and make the most of every minute.
