I'll pause while you all catch your breath.
Ashley from Wasn't Quilt in a Day is the Queen for the month of August in our ScrapBeeLicious hive and she requested Converging Corners blocks. Now, this block is something that I am pretty darn familiar with, so there was no learning curve or studying tutorials - I was able to just jump in with both feet!
The main difference from Film in the Fridge's original (and my) version was that Ashley requested just a plain center in Kona White which will end up giving her quilt some seriously gorgeous negative space to work with. As far as the color palette, I'm just going to quote her post here: color vomit. Sounds gross, but it is really so, so lovely.

So here are your two Converging Corners blocks Ashley - lots of rich saturated colors with a little extra fuchsia punch thrown in.
I had so many scraps in such great colors that I had a really hard time narrowing it down - so I ended up making each of my corners a little extra scrappy. I hope that Ashley doesn't mind! Since my previous experience with Converging Corners was color-planned and organized to the tee, it was so fun and freeing to mix it up and be super scrappy!
In fact, this may be the first time that I haven't worked with a set color scheme. I've always thought that scrappy wasn't my thing, but Ashley may have changed my mind!
They are heading your way so I hope that you love them!
And an extra little apology to my other worker bees - I seriously doubt that I will ever be this ahead of the game again.
