color challenge #3... avocado...








Week 3's challenge from Victoria is avocado. This is another one of those colors that looks mucky but sets off others beautifully. There are lots of great color combinations with avocado but this block is inspired by all the wonderful things growing in the garden in the spring.

Greens are one of the few colors where warm and cool members of the family look good together. I added lots of different ones and some pops of flowery brights.

Here is the starter fabric on the lower left and the added fabrics...

  1. Love what you did with the avocado colors! Kaffe certainly does some great fabrics up in those colors and it certainly makes your block sing!

  2. Thanks Jackie... Kaffe is definitely "the Dude" of color! Am enjoying making all the fabric from scraps of his fabrics.

  3. Nice. I'm a sucker for florals and Kaffe's are so sumptuous, so rich. One again, S, you nailed it!
