The colour theme for October for the Rainbow Scrappy challenge is Brown.
I don’t have a lot of brown but I did find enough to cut my 5 inch squares for my D4Ps.. but I haven’t sewn them yet.
However, I did a little catching up on my building houses and made a Teal one and an Orange one. Here they are followed by a picture of them all together so far.
I apologize for the quality of the lighting in the last picture, I took it late in the evening and from this distance it isn’t good.
Now you may be thinking I’ve already done the brown.. but I haven’t. That house on the bottom is the one that I did first to try out the pattern. I still have a proper brown house to do. And I’ve just noticed that the teal house looks a bit wonky! Oh well it will do.
Now while I was going through my small selection of brown scraps, I got the idea to play with the 1.5 inch (or there abouts) squares of browns and tans I found in with the brown box. Most are from those samples you used to get from shops.
Anyhow, I started to like the way they were looking. I’m not sure what I’ll do with them but they will be there when inspiration strikes. Here’s a little mock arangement… not quite complete:
Let’s just call it an idea in progress. The piece of brown in the middle was a piece I had cut earlier in the day to make my Dear Jane block with. It was laying around on my table when I was putting up the 4patches onto my small design wall. Hmmm.. That leads us on to my final brown bit. My Dear Jane block. H-1 Peek A Boo.
