2024 June Monthly Color Challenge Block

 It's spring in the Upper Midwest where I reside and we're about a month away from ripe raspberries!

Our challenge this month is inspired by tropical fish. Such beauty lays under the water, it's hard not to be inspired.

This month our color is raspberry and we look to the Harlequin Rasboras for our inspiration. 

From ModestFish Colorful Freshwater FishHarlequin Rasboras are a stunning little freshwater fish with a vibrant, ruby lozenge-shaped body with a black wedge running from their dorsal fin to their tail. Excellent in a peaceful community tank, due to their active schooling behaviors, Harlequin Rasboras will really create some colorful spectacles as they race across your tank.

I love raspberries, and this block has me so excited for fresh raspberry season!

I'm using Benartex's "Burlap" fabric line. I love the texture of the fabric, sooo much. 

Our featured blogger this month is:
