Scraphappy in Blues

It must have been back in November when our color assignment for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge was black or brown. About that same time, my music man was playing for a production of the opera The Flying Dutchman. That inspired me to make a few blocks using the patterns known as Flying Dutchman and Dutchman's Puzzle. This week I added three more blocks to that group, all featuring this month's color of light blue.
Flying Dutchman/Dutchman's Puzzle 8" & 12" blocks
I'm not sure that the block with light blue around the outside works with the rest, but it will stay in for now--maybe I will add a few more using blue as the background to balance things out. I was also unhappy to discover that one of my blocks is spinning in the opposite direction of the rest, but I don't find it to be too distracting. I have found several more design variations to try in coming weeks. 


I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on SundayBe sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!

  1. Add a row of tan background-ed blocks around it and that will make a wonderful central square!!
