This month's color at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at So Scrappy is....... Brown, Gray or Black. Hmmmm.... I found this a bit challenging indeed! My Offset Log Cabin blocks have been delightful rainbow-like. :-) I was a little stumped when I saw the color selection from Angela . I don't have a lot of brown in my stash, nor did I think it would go with my blocks. So I moved onto Gray or Black. I decided that gray was definitely the way to go.
Although skeptical at first, I am really delighted with the way these came out.
I have been trying to increase my gray pallet, so this was a good place to use them.
I was focusing on value in both of these blocks. This being the lighter one.
And one slightly darker.
Lucy didn't care much about value.. other than how soft they were to lay on.
Check out the other wonderful October blocks at RSC2014. I'm linking up there.
The RSC has challenged me to use gray more often and I have enjoyed it. Your gray fabric selections are wonderful - soothing, yet softly colorful!ReplyDelete

I felt the same way about using the brown, but it works. Beautiful blocks.ReplyDelete
I really like your blocks and the greys are so neat! I used the brown and still have to do the grey/black.ReplyDelete
