tangerine and aqua

Looking at Maureen's blog yesterday and still thinking about that tangerine is the new 2012 color
(which I don't like, I just don'ta like orange)
anyways, I was looking at her blog and a FQ bundle she made with the orange, aqua/ turqouise, grey and black, it looked GREAT!
so of course I wanted to play more in EQ, so here's some ideas.

I started with a star chain block and then a snowball block and alternated those, made a strippy border.


Then I changed teh colors.


and added a nine patch instead of the snowball block.


omitted almost all the black and changed some colors around a little


what about this funky block instead- forgot what it's called

 

now I replaced a diamond in a square block with the nine patch, uhh that looks cool


then colored the bands to line up I guess like a twisted ribbon and just a touch of black.
all simple blocks, and if I made this I might just make a pinwheel block and then applique the black square on top.


which one is your favorite?

I love the first one - I like the way the petal shapes really stand out in this colourway
