Layer Cake Sampler QAL – Week 5

I’ve finally caught up on my Layer Cake Sampler QAL blocks – this week’s blocks 9 & 10.  Block 10 is by far my favourite so far.  When first looking at it I thought it was a bit plain but the teal bubbles made it pop!  I’m so excited to complete my blocks DURING the same week as they are released!  The same weekend too!  Amazing!

Here’s playing with the combinations for Block 9.  I ended up finding the two fabrics that made the pattern too flat for my liking.  I ended up ditching the color combo completely and opting for a darker pallet.  I do need to bring purple back into the mix, I’ve been using up the aqua / greens quite a bit.

On the home front, the little guy has been sick with the fever the last couple days.  We did make it out to the Dinosaur Train event but he ended up getting car sick on the way to the train depot.
