Here is my take on this week’s color combo challenge from the Color Throwdown blog.  They are no longer naming the colors, but giving us the freedom to use outside the stated Stampin Up colors….for my combo I did used Stampin Up colors.  Basic Gray, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo and the lighter shade of the Island Indigo that was used in printing the designer paper.  I also tried to keep the the quilt theme that was given in the inspiration picture by creating this folded patchwork square…each square is actually a circle!!

Step 1: Punch 1.75″ circles from double-sided paper.  Step 2: Punch 1.25″ square, set in middle of circle and make score lines around square.  Step 3: Fold score lines inward. Remove square. Repeat with multiple circles. Line up circles together for quilted look.
