Sherri from A Quilting Life is the designer of the July Aurifil block, the Beach Houses block, and while I think her teal colors for the block are perfect for the beach, I already had a teal block in my grouping which is turning into a rainbow. As I was pondering what color to use for the block last week, I went on an evening walk with my husband and enjoyed a spectacularly beautiful sunset in deep pinks and fuchsias, so I decided to use that as my color inspiration for the block.
I do love log cabin blocks, but it turns out it has been a while since I sewed one together.
I chose to vary the pink to fuchsia prints but use the same black and white prints for consistency in this block.
With 5 more blocks to create for the year, I am starting to think about what colors need added (red, a bright orange, purple…).
The growing stack of blocks makes me very happy!
If you are sewing along, each month one person who links up their pieced block wins a 12 large spool kit, and there are usually 25-30 entries. So don’t forget to link up your version for your chance to win.
