I decided to use the deep blue I have been using for quite a few of my blocks as its very similar in colour to my cutting mat and if you have a rotary cutter and a ruler you know you need a cutting mat, right?!
As is always the way with these things, of course I only noticed the error I made after I looked at the photo. Its minor so I'm not going to change it but the back block should be a little shorter than the front one and mine are the same length. Didn't label my foundation properly there I guess!
My favourite ruler is my fluoro green Matilda's Own 12.5" square ruler and as I happened to have some green in a similar colour, I decided to use it for my ruler. Pretty happy with the way that came out.
The hardest fabric to find for me was the grey/silver for the blade - no silver or plain grey in my collection so what to do? Not sure if you've ever tried it but sometimes the back of a fabric can be just the colour you're looking for, so I flipped a few over and found the right look I was after.
This blue fabric on the right side of the photo below:
became this nice mottled silver/grey for my blade:
