I trampled through my stash, looking for teals. I remember the batch of dull, blue-grayish teals that I have. They are more than a bit drab, but I thought that's what I would have to use. When I dug into the blue scrap bin full of small pieces, I found some snippets of bright aquas that I had put aside with other bright colors for childrens quilts. Eureka, I could borrow some of those.
I had a late start today, so I settled for making the kaleidoscope blocks. After painstaking care, they came out a different size........again. The large one actually came out 12-1/2". Yay. The little one came out 5-3/4" while I was looking for 6-1/2". The center connection was also a bust. So I see I will have to do alot of creative framing to be able to fit these all into the same quilt. I do love a challenge!
The coloring in my photos are not coming out just right. So when you see blue, just imagine aqua.
So, is 'teal' a shade from the green family and 'aqua' a shade from the blue family??? I have no seagreen teals .... they are all an offspring of blue. I am linking up with Angela at Soscrappy where you'll see what everyone else is making up with their teals. What is your thoughts on the difference between teals and aquas?? Please leave me a comment.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting.
