Color challenge, and a winner

This is the dusty blue color challenge piece for a few weeks ago on 15 Minutes Play.  As you can see, I am a little behind in the colors.  I still have rust and tomato red to catch up on.  I hope to get them done before the new color comes out on Wednesday.  I was not surprised to find very little dusty blue in my stash.  I am low in blues in general, unless they are aqua or turquoise.  Since I rarely use red, white, and blue together, I decided to go with that this time.  I call this piece Miss American Pie.  It is destined to become an AAQI quilt.
And now, Congratulations! to Ann Skelton from Renegade Quilter on winning the 16 fat quarter bundle of Flea Market Fancy.  Ann participated in Sarah Craig's (Confessions of a Fabric Addict) H2H charity drive this year by making two great quilts.  I will be mailing her the bundle later today. There were many generous quilters who participated in this charity quilt drive this year.  Congratulations to them all.
And now, back to the doll clothes.  Joyful quilting, everyone.

That block is great! I love the colors you put together for it.

Great block! And I recognize that dusty blue. I used to have some of that (for a loooong time!). I think all that's left is a few scraps, maybe. You came up with a great use for it!

You do such a good job with this type of challenge...these are hard for me. I really like how this turned out - it'll be a great one for AAQI. :)
