Scrappy Saturday

The RSC colour for the month of April is aqua. 
This is a colour that I don't often buy, don't notice at the quilt store, and used to dislike (see quilt retreat report from 2007!) But participating in the RSC has helped me to become friends with this colour and to see the benefit of using it in scrappy quilts. 

The March Aurifil BOM designer of the month is Sedif Imer and she designed a block called Harvest Block. I used some scrappy aqua fabrics to make the HSTs for this block. 

Here are all the Aurifil blocks that I have made so far. There are a few from last year's Aurifil DOM and a few from this year.
Hop over to the Aurifil linkup to see more versions of the Harvest block. Also linking up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

That's a really neat block! I like the turquoise in your Aurifil blocks!

I think you have done wonderfully well with a color that is not a favorite. Sometimes we have to sew out side the "block"!

Nice aquas, especially if it's not your favorite. Love the harvest block!

Super batch of aqua blocks! For someone who didn't like it very much, you've sure managed to make beauty out of the color :)

I've always been crazy about teal but lukewarm towards aqua - which is odd since they're the same color! Your aquas look great!

Your aqua blocks are beautiful! Love the Harvest Block

Funny, as I used to feel the same way about aqua but then suddenly things changed and I am so in love with it! It goes with everything! Thanks for sharing.

Isn't it interesting how some colors just don't appeal like others? I'm not a huge fan of most blues or yellow, though the sunny/golden yellows are growing on me just a little.
I love your black/white/aqua blocks. They have a lot of interest because of the color arrangement and the patterns themselves.
