July TIF Crazy Quilt block

It has taken me 2 weeks to try to get the colours right for this months challenge and I'm still not sure --but if the TIF police come a calling to get me I'll pretend that I'm not home.
The colours that my computer read were ghastly and I checked some of the other TIF members blogs and they have each seen so many different colours to what I am getting--I know the colours are only a guideline for us but I do want to try and get it right.
Mary Ann tried to help with a scan of what she saw but that only made it worse (thanks MA for trying to help)--so anyway here is what I have come up with.
I saw a yellow gold-an yellow green--a taupe--pale blue and a slate grey/green colour and after all the bother I can honestly say I am happy with it.




Now I will have to rush in and embellish it before the next one is ready.
Rush--rush--rush.

Looks good Doreen...especially after all that angst you went through with the colours. I think this will be beautiful!

Hi Doreen, Love your block! I know what you mean about the colors, it was a tough palette this time. Will be interesting to see how others interpret it. Enjoy your week!

Hi Doreen
I've just checked your colours on my computer and they look pretty close to the colour pallet to me.
I think you've done a splendid job with a very challenging pallet. Can't wait to see how you embellish it.

I am having awful trouble getting together something that I think either suits the palette or the theme, I think I will be late this time but at least I have started looking at colors. too many things I am trying to do as usual and visits to the physio are not helping. .Freezing cold here I guess you are even colder.

Looking good Doreen! I had to admit failure and drop out.
