Bonjour Beautiful Blue!


The Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour for July 2017 is blue. My three blue Talkin' Turkey blocks for my Technicolor Turkey quilt are done!

My stash is mostly sorted by colour, and I have to admit that I don't open my blue box as often as I should. I found a lot of goodies in there! Even though I have a lot of fabric, I still remember where and why I bought almost all of it. But there were a few that I truly had forgotten.


See that gorgeous batik with the orange leaves? My best guess is that I must have bought that on a whim at a show somewhere. I used to always buy fabric with a specific project in mind, but I cannot remember any plan for that one.

And the fabric with the little sunflowers? I also have that in sage green, which tells you something about its age. Those are also probably from a show. I always buy sunflower fabric when I see it!


Anyway, three blue blocks are all I need, so I think that next time I will keep catching up on the months I missed, and go back to red for March.

In the meantime, there is plenty more blue in the RSC link up, right here.

Have a great weekend!

  2. Naming your quilt Technicolor Turkey, just makes me smile! (I needed one of those today!) Your blues are wonderful and how fun to remember the activities your were doing when you purchased the fabrics! I can still do that too although my family members tell me I'm "off" and have too little in my life when I can remember where I purchased fabric! ")

    1. Thanks, Terry! I have a good memory anyway, but especially when it comes to something I'm interested in. MY family, on the other hand, frequently can't remember what they did two hours ago. I'm starting to worry about them!

  10. Each time I see these Turkey blocks the scrap strip triangles catch my eye. Such sparkle addition from such a small variation.

  11. I love that really dark blue, and the sunflowers give a great lift, especially as they pick up on the neutrals. Blue rocks!

    1. Thanks, Jillian! It is interesting, isn't it, to look at a bunch of colours and patterns and see which ones really speak to you. I have learned a lot about my preferences from doing this project!
