F²F³: December round-up

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!

F²F³: November round-up

November was Robin’s month in F²F³.

Robin’s colour palette was cerise and a rich royal blue with orange on a white background, and she provided a photo of a camellia in a blue vase with a mandarine for reference.

It was also great that she made one of her own blocks ahead of schedule for the gallery, so the rest of us could see what she was thinking, and she gave us quite a lot of freedom about how muted or intense the colours could be.

This month has been a busy one, and we didn’t all quite manage the stellar delivery performance of last month, when we finished ahead of schedule. There are still three sets of blocks to go out, and I still need the photos of these for the gallery. I’m sure it’ll all be done very soon, and I’ll load the images into the gallery as soon as I get them.

November is Esther’s month. She’s chosen a variety of soft shades of green and grey, based on a photo of plants and their pots in her garden. If you click on the Members/Colours page link given below, you can see what this slightly vague description looks like, and it’s a very pretty palette. I sincerely hope I’ll be able to find suitable fabrics, as the shops are currently full of Christmas-themed prints and colourways!

Now, let’s see what I have by way of muted greens…
