What does “Toasty Teal” say to you?

Rachel at Stitched in Color is hosting a mosaic contest.  Using the prompt “Toasty Teal” you need to create a mosaic using fabrics from Bobbie Lou’s Fabric Factory.  The winner wins the fabrics from the mosaic they create!

To me Toasty Teal brings to mind a swirl of watery blue, with pops of hot colors scattered around.

Here is my first selection.  I love that there are so many different prints with arrows.   I had a mild fascination with arrows as a child, through a combination of love of the Robin Hood story and a fantasy that I was descended from Native Americans.  (I am not, despite a family legend.  Thanks, 23andMe for ruining that for me.)

I’m allowed to make two submissions, so here is another.  This one is more watery.  I think I like it a bit better.  This is a fun palette to play with.

That was fun.  Thanks, Janice for sharing the contest!  Now I have to get back to work.  Although I do believe I’ve found the perfect backing for my Athena quilt.   The sea creatures on the upper left fabric will do nicely.
