two steps forward...

at least one step back!

Four, three, four, three was too predictable so I used the 3 little chunks from the leftover pile to make a half block and that felt better. I had used some of the side border gold fabric to make one more pinwheel as well but I used the back of the fabric.

I now need to think about this top and see if I need a few borders and if it will need a binding or self facing.

Then I picked the 4 fabrics for a convergence wall hanging and two fabrics have collided in a less than graphic way so I am also considering my options for that. The 2 top fabrics do not have enough contrast and it didn't show up until I did the final slicing. Hmmm!

I've finally had a chance to catch up on your blog. I love the color lesson you offered, including printing off black and greyscale copies along with the color strips. This one has me a bit confused, though. Not sure I understand where the black and white pinwheels came in on the left side of the first quilt, but I see the lack of contrast on the top two fabrics of the bottom one. I agree that sometimes you don't see it until you have it cut, or even worse, until it's finished and you have photographed it. I am enjoying the different colors, though.
