F2F3: January round-up

January was Kathy’s month in F²F³.

Her colours were sky blue, a sort of cornflower blue, and gray, from silvery gray to as dark as charcoal, with white as the neutral.

She said: “I don’t see having a dash of other colors in a print being an issue, but would prefer they be more on the cool side. I am seeing the sky blue, grays and white being the main focus with smaller bits of the darker blue. I made a Pinterest board with some photos, here’s the link: https://pin.it/5niixxhyxvfpb3“.

If you want to see all the finished blocks, go to the F²F 2018 gallery here. F²F reference and finished block images are maintained on a separate blog from Tall Tales From Chiconia, due to their image-heavy nature, and the home page is here, if you want to bookmark it or follow it. The galleries are a useful library of colour and block designs, and the previous F²F session is also stored there.

And finally, we’re into the home stretch. February is the last month of this series, and all the blocks are for meeeeee! I’ve chose a palette of soft greys and lilacs: amethyst and slate. The effect I hope to achieve is a soft vintage look, nothing very bright or strong. You can see my colour references at the bottom of the Members/ Colours page here.

Note to all participants: although I’m moving house halfway through the month, I’m requesting that you send the blocks to my current address; we aren’t moving right away as lots of renovation is needed first, and in any case I’ll have mail forwarding in place. If you’ve already changed my address details and want the old address, email me. If you’ve already sent it to the new address, don’t worry, the current owners will put it aside for me till settlement day.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with 🙂

    Really must get mine made into a quilt soon – i’ve had the blocks since July after all!

      Don’t fret. 2-3 weeks is normal…. I made myself a rule at the beginning of the year, not a resolution as such, more a decision that I’d actually make up some of my quilts-in-waiting in block form before I started anything else new. It feels good…

    that’s a lovely selection of blocks for Kathy!
    My blocks for you are all ready to be posted. I’ll probably get that done on Monday. I’ll email you when they take flight.
