Solstice Challenge Block 3

I'm still working on the spiral quilting on the LCT QOV, so nothing new to show there.

Other than that, I haven't had much time to spend in the sewing room this week. But I did take few minutes and make one block, Block 3 of Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge.

These are so not my usual colors! In addition to keeping up with the blocks, working with this palette is also a challenge for me. Here are the first two blocks and the fabric pull:

I wonder how this will come together. Will it look cohesive or will it just be a collection of random blocks? We'll see. Maybe I should limit the selection of prints and repeat a few of them in several blocks each. I think I have enough of that off white print to use it as a constant neutral throughout if I'm careful, and that also may help add continuity. It's too soon to tell where this is going yet.

  1. You may end up finding this to be your favorite color combo. I find your palette very soothing.

  2. I like the fabrics in your most recent block. The color palette is very soothing. Looking forward to seeing this project develop.
