December was Esther’s month in F²F³.
Esther had a lovely and unusual colour palette for her, based on a photo of the plants and pots in her garden. There were shades of soft green, blue and grey to play with, lots of fun and a total change from the brights of the month before.
She made a couple of her own blocks and got them up in the gallery in time to give the rest of us an idea of what she was thinking, always helpful when faced with colours and combinations you wouldn’t have thought of yourself!
Because of Christmas, we’ve all been really busy, and I was amazed and delighted when we ALL finished on time 🙂 Congratulations, all of you! By the day after Christmas, all photos were up, a stellar achievement.
January is Kathy’s month. Here’s what she said about her colours:
My colors are sky blue, a sort of cornflower blue, and gray: from silvery gray to as dark as charcoal, with white as my neutral. 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:
I think I’m going to enjoy working on this one, I ♥ this cool palette of greys and blues!
If you want to see all the finished blocks, go to the F²F 2018 gallery here, and if you want to check out all the colour palettes, go to the Members/ Colours page here. F²F reference and finished block images are now maintained on a separate blog 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 session is also stored there.
F²F³ has been great fun so far. I wish everyone a great start to 2019 and the final two sets of blocks to complete it!
