Catching up!



What would you understand given the instruction, 'Gelati colours' ?

This was the colour instruction for these blocks. 14", an unusual size, and this 'gelati'  word. On white.

To me, gelati is icecream, and the colours would be creamy, soft shades, but the starter block was in rich greens and blues. So, I thought I should wait and get my sticky paws on it to see what the colours were really like, before I added my mite.
The starter is that one, third row down, and second from the left, a pretty Dresden plate.









So, this is my one. I think it works from the point of view of the colours, I just have a blind spot which says, this is not icecream..But it will be a wonderful vibrant quilt, when it finally gets home.

making that block?   Ok, I winged it... I started with the centre, and just added until I reached a sensible size, and then, stopped. And added that white border.


Ok, let's try to get parcels in the post! Soon.

Gorgeous colour range and some super blocks too. Your's is lovely and slots in very well.
As for ice cream colours... it comes in quite some shades these days and the latest, whilst recently in Germany, was a bright turquoise blue called "Squashed Smurfs"!!! I resisted in favour of Kirch flavour with it's gorgeous cherry pieces and rich cerise colour.
