RSC Blocks

In April the RSC for multi colors.  I thought I would just pass on that one, I could not visualize a way to make the Saw Toothed Square.  You can read the post here.  At the time I made lots of other colors though.

I finally had a bright idea, how about a string block center, surrounded by HST from the various colors in the blocks I have made previously?  I started hunting for strings in the fabrics I used.

I had some left over HST.  So I was on my way.

This is my first one.

Second one.
Third one
Fourth one.  I am pretty pleased I figured out how to do multi color blocks. 

I decided to add another pink.

A dusky lavender.
A dark chocolate brown.

I will cheat and say I think I managed to get June done with a yellow.

July's blocks were blue.  I got a couple of those done.

Another aqua or light mint green block.

The color for August were neutrals.  I think these fit the bill.

I may have to add some more.  These are all of my blocks together.

I have 29 blocks now.  Sorry this is the lightest room in the house but it isn't very wide with the furniture so this is the best I could do.  I think I have 20 more blocks to make.  I may be able to finish this up this year.
