Here is my July block for Kelly!
I actually had a really hard time finding good fabrics for this block in my stash. First, I sew with a lot of saturated colors and don't have a lot of the softer "sherbet" colors Kelly was looking for. I hope my block doesn't have too much pop.
She also said she prefers the background to not be bright white. But I don't have any creams / ivory / etc in my stash. I tried to pull a couple of my white on white low volume prints that don't read quite so bright and a couple super soft grays. Hopefully it will blend in well with other blocks.
As for my favorite tool for a new quilter - Elmer's Washable School Glue. I've really taken a liking to glue basting for getting perfectly aligned points!
I mailed my block out a couple days ago so Kelly should be receiving it soon!
