To escape the dreary rain, we'll be pretending we're on a trip to somewhere warm and sunny in the tropics and use white with some tropical brights: yellows, oranges, corals, limes, hot pinks, purples and turquoises in all solids (no white-on-white please). Scroll to the bottom of this post for an inspiration graphic for colors.
This month we'll be doing the Bento Box block in tropical-inspired solid colors. This block uses 2 1/2 inch strips and will end up at 12 1/2 inches big, and the tutorial can be found here. Please mix and match your colors within a block, with white always being the light in the block. Keep one color throughout one quarter of the block though. So, the block would end up white with 4 different "darks" (one color in each corner) in each block. Enjoy!
