Blossom Heart Quilts, June 28


It's summer already and half way through the Modern HST Sampler blocks.  In fact, the block's title is Rock Pools, so I reversed the suggested color scheme and made all the light backgrounds dark and the small dark highlights became light and bright in my watery version.  To me it speaks of cool water in a shady creek with the bubbling sound of the ripples over the rocks.  What better place to spend a hot summer day!

I also just complete my slab block for June, which is done in teas and lime also, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colors for the month.  I spent a lot of time thinking about it as it grew into an image reminding me of a neighborhood flower shop.

Here's hoping all of you will have a good week full of stitching fun.  I link up with Blossom Heart Quilts and Rainbow Scrap Challenge .


  1. your rock pool has worked well in those colours and the scrap challenge looks good too

  2. I love your rock pools block Paula, perfect colour choice and lives up the the name. You must like in a lovely neighbourhood if thats your local flower shop :)
