i was apparently also feeling very gray & yellow with these sets. i tried to add a punch of color in the 4th block (aka the "you in a block" block) but it just wasn't happening. must have been some subliminal realization of just needing a few more lighter blocks to balance out the darker blue of months before. also this month i was able to use some of my fabric i purchased that has just been waiting for it's time to shine. time to stop delaying you from the fun... here are the blocks!
a random search on etsy to see what specifically i could find and just happened to stumble across these fantastic fat quarters. charlotte filshie is the amazing designer behind these dinosaurs (and super hero one) but i wasn't convinced right away because they were only in the UK. i went back and forth for a few weeks, and the on a whim decided to buy them and not look back. once i finally got to the "you in a block" block (#44) i knew i had to make them happen. while i'm way more in to tap than ballet, they were just so silly and amusingly perfect. plus, pairing them with tacos & a "cochella cat" as angelina calls them just rounded out the block.
i'm nervous for the next chapter with all the intense piecing plans, but sad to see it wrap up and come to an end. i feel like i say that EVERY month, but overall, this project has been oh so worth it!
