Since the first post I wrote about this project, I have had some time to think about a colour scheme. (I have to admit I put the post up while my motivation was high, because I knew if I thought it through too much I may never have started.) The colours are going to be dictated by my scraps, but what I am aiming for is lots of white with a rainbow of pure colour pops. I don't want any muddied or greyed off colours. I want the reds to be reds, the pinks to be pink and the turquoises to be turquoise. I also want to stick to one fabric and white for each block but I may have to be a bit flexible about that.
Here's Mum's block:
Mum has decided to mix things up a little and clear out some little projects she has started and not completed along the way. All her blocks will be finished at 6 inches but she may use some borders to bring small blocks she has already made up to this size. She is also going to use a nifty quilt as you go technique.
So for block two, I thought we would try one of the Dear Jane quilt originals called Cathie's Campfire.
