It's grey and rainy, so I decided to get a color shot by putting together the blocks I made last year for our monthly STITCH challenge, even though I didn't get blocks made for every month. The blue block in the top right of the second photo didn't seem to fit, so I made another one. (First photo, right side, second from top.)
Then I tried a few different arrangements. A digital camera sure helps to compare! After very little pondering I decided to go with the layout in the first photo, which was the third layout I tried.
The fourth photo shows the first arrangement I tried, which I sort of like but decided to go with a more orderly setting that forms five diamonds ... although, now that I'm reviewing this post, I'm going back and forth between the first and last photos. Any opinions?
Here is how it looked outside this morning, which is why I needed to not dither and just jump into the color. I found the fun rain boot vase at Rite Aid yesterday half off and filled it with flowers brought over earlier in the week by a neighbor and her little great-granddaughters and a granddaughter. They come every Tuesday to visit Bunners and swing on the porch swing. They always brighten my day!
I've linked up to Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday in case you want to see what other fiber artists have done this week: http://ninamariesayre.blogspot.com/
