These blocks looks much nicer individually than they do all together. Ugh. Teetering on feeling not-so-hopeful about the outcome of Quilt-Along-with-Melody, LOL! And I did not even bother to photograph the first two setting attempts because they were so bordering on awful. One setting actually struck me as garish. Imagine! Now I am thinking it would have been entertaining for you to see them after all, haha!
How does Wanda Hanson of Exuberant Color pull it off? By “it”, I mean fearlessly combining wild prints with fabulous outcomes. I am sure it is practice/experience, a really good design eye, AND a monster stash of amazing fabrics – and being willing to fall flat. I present my case for falling flat – at least temporarily!
Time to let these puppies percolate for a few days. No answers are coming at the moment. I want to eat some chocolate. Though, when I cut into the big blocks to make them into four smaller blocks, I felt I wanted to keep them at the half-block stage, so maybe I will sew them back up and try setting them again as rectangles. And last night I dreamt of adding curves somehow. I also have some more blocks to make with some coordinating fabrics, so that will change everythin’ too… hmmm….
