Nine of 12 blocks completed. I don’t have a design wall, so I photographed each block separately against white fabric in my sunroom and then cropped each picture to approximately the same size. Not quite the same as a design wall, I know, but it’s the best I have right now.
Despite it’s shortcomings, my “design wall” shows me what I like and what I don’t like, which is the whole point of a design wall. The dark green pieces of the blocks really stand out to me, and not in a good way. I think I would have liked them better if they were heavier on the blue. I also thought I would not like the blue/gray part of the middle left block, but that doesn’t bother me too much from afar. That said, I’m going to substitute something else for the blue/gray pieces I’ve already cut for the final 3 blocks. Maybe I’ll add more of the pink AMH Shattered. That’s kind of appropriate for blocks of windows, no?
I’ve got too much invested to undo the green/blue pieces of blocks 1, 2, 3, and 6 so I’m going to have to live with them. I’ll rearrange them on the quilt so they’re not so close together. I do love love love the aqua parts. Perhaps they’re opposites on the color spectrum and that’s why they draw my eye in(?)
Note to self: need a real design wall soon!
