Rainbow Challenge August Turquoise Blocks

I didn't realize how much I liked turquoise, teal and aqua until this month's rainbow challenge. Such calming colors. Since I was pretty much out of this color, scraps and stash, I bought 3 pieces of turquoise themed fabric, each half a yard. Then I was able to made three blocks, cut some strips to add to my strip collection for a rainbow challenge jelly roll race quilt in December ... and have a little turquoise fabric in my stash.
To see what others have made with their turquoise stash and scraps, go here.

You are a quilter after my own heart...buying new fabric for a scrap project...I do this ALL the time!! These are so pretty!

Looking good! You're right they are a lovely calming colour and I could head off to the beach too - pity its pouring with rain outside or I could wander down to the beach (about 10 mins walk for me), all be it a pebble beach but still nice!!

Great blocks. So pretty. Love this color. Yikes, I don't have mine done; been too busy writing blog post for the giveaway and forgot! ;(. Thanks for reminder. Have a good weekend.

Great blocks. I like the bit of lime coming in to them.

Love your blocks. Too bad you had to go out and get more fabric;) Now you'll have a few scraps for next time. The colors are just lovely though, so fresh and fun.

Lovely blocks. Those blue-greens are great colours, aren't they?

Great looking fabrics - isn't it fun to have new color inspiration?!

Very pretty blocks. Like you I didn't realize how much I teal/turquoise. I have almost none in my stash. I'll have to fix that in the future.
