Wednesday Wait Loss 35

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss! I'm on a roll! On Sunday, I showed you the block I made for my Bee Inspired bee mate, Ann. Ann was Hive Queen for August, so I'm late in getting my block to her.

On Monday, I made blocks for Jen @ A Dream and a Stitch (Hive Queen for September) and Janice @ Color Creating and Quilting (Hive Queen for October).

Jen wanted her block in any size, with a gray background and two tertiary colors. Tertiary. Hmmmm. Time to consult the color wheel.

Bet you know what the primary colors are: red, blue, and yellow. And the secondary colors aren't hard to figure out--they are made using two primaries: violet (red and blue), green (blue and yellow), and orange (yellow and red).

Tertiary colors are made by combining a primary and a secondary color. So they include red-violet, red-orange, yellow-green, yellow-orange, blue-violet, and blue-green. For my block, I chose blue-violet and yellow-green.

Janice wanted this 8" block using our favorite colors. Janice didn't know if the block had a name so I'll ask. Does anyone know the name for this one?

My favorite color is purple but I love blue and gree as well so that's what I chose. Janice also wanted high-contrast, and the two fabrics I chose didn't produce the contrast I wanted. So I may end up redoing her block.

Now that you know what I've been doing, let's see what you're up to! First, it's time for our weekly feature.

This week I want to feature Suz @ DesertSky Quilting. Suz is a long-time supporter of WWL and I'm thrilled to feature her this week. Suz is participating in the Holly Cottage Christmas Sew Along, and she just finished the fourth block.

The blocks in the Holly Cottage quilt are embroidered, and oh so cute! Here are blocks 1 to 4. Aren't they wonderful? This quilt is going to be so cute!

Congratulations Suz! Here's an “I Was Featured” button for your blog.
