Scrappy Saturday - aqua

It is aqua month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but I have (unbelievably) used up most of my aqua scraps! It is not a colour I sew with a lot, and I used up most of my scraps last week sewing two slab blocks and cut the remaining pieces into spool blocks
Since I already had a teal palm branch, I decided to finish up my yellow block that I started last month.
It has been so long since I did any paper piecing, it was wonderful to remember how much I enjoy it! (To see more paper piecing blog posts, you can visit the link up over at Quiet Play.)
Here are the 9 Palm Branch blocks I have sewn so far.
The original block pattern is called Red Herring  and the pattern is from Kristy at Quiet Play (lots of free paper piecing patterns on her blog). 
My collection really needed a yellow block.
