You may remember my dilemma in my colour choices while making this quilt. I really wanted a bright fall theme for this quilt, but using the values only for placement resulted in orange and blue 4 patches. This meant that the flow of the pattern was lost in the dramatic colour contrast. Here is a quick comparison I posted on instagram:
I decided that swapping the dark blue and magenta meant the least amount of rework, and a little play using Paint on the computer gave me the confidence to get started.
Yes! This is so much better. I just need to remake the half square triangles. Ahh, that’s better. After a diligent effort here is the first block (of four).
As to the leftover 4-patches and navy HST, I’ll probably make up some larger pieces — as 6″ blocks they might mix nicely with my Farmer’s Wife blocks.
