Second Teal Week Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Nabby's Dowry Sew Along

My July teal kaleidoscope block.  And below, my bonus kaleidoscope block from June and July leftovers. 

  July's scrappy trip along block.  I really am enjoying the teal and  turquoise.  (Below)

This evening we went to a local club with my daughter,  her husband, a grandson and his friend, a grandson and his wife and son, and we all listened to another grandson and his band perform.   (My grandson is the red head with the guitar.)   They get better each time we hear them and I think they are really good.   They are on a small stage in the middle of the bar surrounded by liquor bottles. I think I'd be too nervous to play afraid that I'd fall. 

I've been accumulating bonus HST's from my Deck-ade the Halls, Quilty Barn Along, and especially the Flower Patch Quilt Along.  They are only 1 1/4 inch finished, and I was wondering what I would do with them.  Along came a post on Kathy's Quilts and lo and behold, lots and lots of HST's, hers are 1 1/2 inch finished, but my 1 1/4 inchers will just make a smaller quilt, 30 by 30 inches if my figures are correct.  Just a nice size for a wall quilt.  The Nabby's Dowry Sew Along is here on Heartspun Quilts.

Here they are, I think I'll have plenty.  You'd think with all these that I wouldn't have had any duplicates in my little block.  I'll use the excuse that I was doing this at 3:00 am.  Even in broad daylight my brain doesn't always function well.  3:00 am is very iffy.

I thought originally that the HST's were 1" finished, but I guess that they are 1 1/4" finished. 


PS.  As usual, to see more RSC entries go to Angela's soscrappy's blog here.

Your kaleidoscope blocks are too awesome for words!

Lovely teal kaleidoscope blocks and what fun it must have been to listen to your grandson perform.

Fun blocks - I especially love the aqua and pink combos - it's the S. Floridian in me!

Very pretty teal blocks. Great idea for using HST's for the Nabby's Dowry Sew along. I think I'll find the bag of HST's from the scrappy stars quilt when I get home and play along too!
