The colour of the sea

Here is the start of my Broome quilt
I've made lots of scrappy strips up in the colours of Broome,
The block with the circle in it is my depiction of the Staircase to the Moon

Here is a photo of a photo taken by the very talented Yane Sotiroski
I had to buy his book as my picture taking of the moon just didn't make the grade!
I still have lots of blocks to make, I thought I had plenty of aqua fabric
but I'm scratching through my tiny scraps to find still more pieces.
I thought this would be a quick quilt, using fabrics and scraps that I had on hand.
Maybe I was wrong.
