Catch-Up: Poppies!

"So, what's your nursery theme or color scheme?" I asked this mother, unsuspectingly.

"Pink, red, gray, and poppies," she said.

I was a little surprised by how specific it was. Then I went shopping for backings and found...well...the perfect thing that shocked me. And without further's the next of my 2017 finishes.

Courthouse steps block again. I played around with how to do my colors in the block so it didn't look messy. Pink and red intermixed in the block looked just messy. I decided in the end to make the pink the center of the block and do color gradients with the red and gray. Darkest reds would be the outside of two sides of the blocks and the lightest reds (not easy to find, let me tell you) were at the center by the pink. Lightest grays were at the center and darkest on the outside.

The PERFECT Backing
