Description

"It's May, it's May, the lusty month of May".... don't know where that came from but I believe it's a throwback to the musical "Camelot"? Help me out +Mymble5 and +Hawkfan.

And how fitting that it's +Hawkfan's month to be Queen. She chose one of my favorite blocks called Weathervane and requested it to be a little less scrappy and a little more keeping in one color family. It always amazes me how different a block can turn out just by changing the background frame or having the center of the block a deeper hue than the lighter inner frame.She also requested that we use bright colors, think crayola box. Well I have the 50 count so that's why I used
one of my favorite colors of aqua/ teal. And I'm thinking the color orange is calling out to me for a second block.

Turns out orange lost the vote and I went with green for the second block. I thought I should mix it up once I saw +Readerowl's lovely orange block. And the 2nd one went together much faster than the 1st one. I think I was getting too distracted watching reruns of Gilmore Girls on my iPad.

HawkFan Conniharns True Thanks ladies! Off to post the 2nd one I just finished.

HawkFan

Love the bright colors of the green!!

Terryt1955

HawkFan Thanks and don't worry,the rectangles are reading more yellow than they are actually are. At least in my mind they read more green.

HawkFan

Terryt1955 I love it even if it's more yellow than green. I'm not a total stickler for the "rules". This is going to be a beautiful quilt

True

OMG the green is amazing!! This is too funny I selected and cut mine before saw yours and I have selected same colors hope works for Audrey! (If not HawkFan let me know and will change)

Terryt1955

True That is funny, because when I saw your first block I thought we were on the same page. Great minds.....

Terryt1955

HawkFan I agree. I can't wait to see the other blocks go up on your design wall.

HawkFan
