RSC 15 week 47 Where did all the navy go?

Into the background, of course; all of it!

Every month Angela, at Socsrappy, publishes a different colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This month's colour is lime and I've finished the lime patches. Unfortunately, before I could complete the orange alternate blocks I ran out of Bella navy blue. Well of course I have a few triangles left; the left overs from all cutting the Flying Geese, but nothing large enough to cut eight 4x4" squares and a few 2½" squares. Hence the gaps!
 
Tuesday, 17 November: Halt to progress! RSC 15: the blocks in rows 1 - 4 and row 7 are joined in the row; rows 5 and 6 are waiting for navy reinforcements.
I'm thinking of re-doing the dark pink block, bottom left; it looks too red, and doesn't balance the other pink block.
I intend adding a navy border and using navy for the binding. I just  hope the LQS's current roll of navy doesn't differ too much from the one they had in January!

Update Saturday morning:

It matches! The blocks are completed! I'm going to change the sawtooth star points on the dark pink block, bottom left.

I shall be linking up to 
RSC 15

on Saturday, so pop over there to see more Rainbow progress.

Happy sewing

Marly

The navy background is stunning! Such great contrast. So glad you found more. Getting to the end and running out of the constant fabric would be simply frightening.
