Tantalizing Teal

It's been a teal'icious month for Rainbow Scrappers!  We have been creating all sorts of inspired blocks using our not-blue, not green scraps.  This week's happy, scrappy house looks a bit blue, but it's honestly teal all the way!

My New Orleans house for the week is turquoise rather than teal.  It's a perfect example of a shotgun house, and it appears to be well-loved, too!

I hope you'll also take a few moments to visit my linky party to Celebrate Sewing with St. Ann.  The link-up closes on Sunday evening, so you've got plenty of time to share a sewing project in honor of St. Ann, the patron saint of seamstresses!

Last but not least, please stop by Angela's blog to see what the other Rainbow Scrappers have been up to this week!


  1. I have never heard of this kind of cool is that?!?!
    Love the fabric version and the photo!
    I'm off to write up a St. Ann post and join the party!

  2. Your fabrics are always so pretty. Love the little shotgun house (not sure what that is - will go and investigate!)

  3. Now I know what a shotgun house is - thanks for the interesting link!

  4. That house is adorable and so is your cute house block!

  5. Love your quilty house...such pretty fabrics. Really interesting to read about the shotgun houses!

  6. Oooh, what pretty aqua/teal houses!

  7. Another beautiful house block! I love the house photos you share too.
