Mauve, avacado, ochre, peach, bright yellow, dusty blue, orange, rust and tomato

I have really enjoyed this colour challenge from www.15minutesplay.com but enough is enough.  I'd like to make more colour 'made fabric', but I think the nine blocks is enough for a nice sized quilt - 16 would have made a much bigger quilt, which I don't really want at the moment.  I'm going to add a piano keys border, and then have some fun quilting it!  I love the stars and the lovely big diamonds which cry out for some lovely quilting designs.  Quite what, I don't know, but any suggestions gratefully received!

I've been getting on with my Challenge UFOs too, and have put the final inner border on this UFO, and another border too.  Not the most wonderful quilt, but at least it's a top now. (I didn't have any of the original navy fabric left, but I don't think you can tell which border is slightly lighter - or can you?

Here's a close up of the digger border fabric.

Sure to be a hit with small boys - hopefully!

wow...loving the blocks in that first pattern. maybe you could use four blocks to make a giant diamond, and build around that...then you will have enough to do two :) Looks like you have been really busy.

Your 15 minutes of play quilt is lovely and very inspiring for me who is accumulated several colourful mile a minute blocks!
