My friend Lorel and I have enjoyed our last 2 years of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. We only did one block per month in the designated colour way. We made our own choices for November and December as these months are usually assembly months.
November's choice was an ode to the mass blossoming of the Jacaranda trees in our city at this time of year....Jacaranda mauve. It was also a butterfly month.
A second block in Angels Story has all its stitchery done....
After searching for a while I have finally found border fabrics suitable for my Gardener's Journal blocks. I think they work really well together. I was really pleased that what I had in my minds eye could be almost replicated.
We have been having a bit of wet weather here of late and it seemed perfect weather for a spot of hand quilting on some secret sewing (its ok the recipient doesn't read my blog) I do love this French General Christmas fabric.
