Rainbow Scrap Challenge-Aqua/Teal/ Turquoise

I love the colours chosen for this months Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but I only had three fabrics that fit into this category.  It wasn't enough to do the normal blocks I do, and I didn't want to add another blue, as it would end up being the same as last month.
I decide to search through those projects I'd saved onto my computer to see if any would fit in, and I came across one of Kaaren's First Friday Freebies which was perfect to adapt to suit the fabric.
The stitching was done on plain white fabric, and I've used a piece of Warm and Natural batting for the needle keep.  All I need now is add a small floss tag, and it will be complete.

There is still some of the fabric left, so I've found another one of Kaaren's patterns I've saved, which I hope to get done by the end of the month.   A big thank you to Kaaren, for coming up with such lovely projects on a regular basis, they are a joy to make.
