2 weeks ago, Angie @Gnome Angel issued a challenge: a Colour Block Challenge. Angie is on a journey making her Farmer’s Wife blocks. She made a decision to do her blocks in saturated colors, and each block she finishes is photographed with a sea of other like coloured items from around her home. In the introduction to the challenge, Angie gives some great tips on how to achieve the look that she created. Originally, the deadline for entry (via Instagram) was for today, April 27th. However, Angie just extended the deadline for a week to May 4th (and announced some awesome prizes for winners from the submissions), and even if you are not on Instagram or don’t think you will participate, do go have a look at her beautiful styling.
I knew that if I was going to play along, I would need to play to my strengths: so clearly my block needed to be blue. Cobalt blue. Even my husband got in on the fun hunting down items to place in the photo (hello blue anodized fittings)! I especially love the 2 tiny cobalt blue shards of sea glass in the lower right corner. And of course some Aurifil (it was hard to pick just one spool!) As Kirsty @Bonjour Quilts pointed out on Instagram, I am a Bower bird. <3
I made and shared my block on Instagram late on Monday evening, and I originally did not plan to share it on my blog. But with the deadline extending out a week, who knows, maybe you want to play along, too?
