Happy 4th July!
To the rest of the world:
Enjoy the Day!
Here we're having a heatwave (yesterday was the hottest day EVER), and the Tour de France is about to start in Utrecht. The heat will not be a problem for the cyclists who are used to these kind of temperatures, but the spectators will be hard pressed to find a cool place to stand. I hope everyone goes well-prepared.
And now out of the sunshine and into the Rainbow!
This is an overview of my Sawtooth Star sampler blocks so far. They are in a random order here.
|All stars in the night sky in a random layout|
I'm not happy with the two on the right of the top row. In January the colour was dark blue, and when you have a dark blue background dark blue stars pose something of a problem, don't you agree? As Angela's background is neutral I decided on neutral stars, but now I'm wondering if I should remake them in a medium blue, like Royal or Kingfisher. What do you think?
|Green and yellow in the final layout.|
This is as far as I've got with the alternate blocks which take their colour from the adjacent star blocks (great design: not my idea, but Angela's). So far I only have one pair of adjacent colours: yellow and green and I'm really pleased with how this is turning out. Below yellow will be orange, so the second half of the block between the two yellow stars will be orange. (If that doesn't make sense look here on Pinterest; you'll need to scroll right to the bottom.) Above the green will be blue, but I'm going to have to do some rearranging of my blue stars first.
This month's colour is red, and I haven't made any red sampler blocks yet, but I have made 3 hexagon flowers:

so hop over there and have a look at all the rainbow progress this year.
