Grapefruit Inspirations

In September, I posted about the welcoming pineapple as the monthly color prompt for the Monthly Color Challenge from “Patterns by Jen” …..

And, as much as I enjoyed the sweet pineapple in my studio, it was followed by the grapefruit for the month of October….that’s right….I am running behind!!!

Now I am NOT a fan of grapefruit…..

….even the sweet Red variety that I pick out to use as inspiration.

I will admit that the citrus aroma did do a great job of freshening my studio and I loved the colors of the pulp…..

The fabrics pretty much chose themselves…..

…and within a few minutes, the pieces were cut and ready to sew…..

Very quickly the block was finished….

…and ready for some fun photography……

Now that I am caught up, this month is BLUEBERRIES…..one of my favorites!!!! Check back later this week for more!!

  1. I love how the block turned out!
    We have a grapefruit tree, and I love grapefruit. Ours are supposed to be ruby red, but they rarely get that dark. I love them best when they just turn pink.

I love to hear from my readers....please leave a comment
