I Bailed Out!
I Bailed Out .......on starting the large upper right section.
I just was not ready to tackle that section on a week night. It needs a longer stretch of time to work it! But that doesn't mean I didn't hit the studio. No Excuses - Need to move forward on this project.
I switched over to the center square section. I am repeating the 3 x 3 layout of traditional nine patches from the red accent square.
Bali Charms to the Rescue!!
Yes - I have mid tones!! And some great lights & deep darks. The two small piles on the right side are the blue shades that lean more toward the aqua/teal/turquoise. They are separated out from the clearer true blues.
Tonight was all about teeny squares - they'll finish at 3/4 inch. Here's the prelim layout:
And it's not quite up to snuff. I only have 7 fabrics here and the color transition is not smooth enough. I need to dig back into the stash and switch out some of these squares. Surprise - it needs more mid tones! ARGH! I knew it, i just knew it when i was laying it out.
The coming weekend is all mine - I'll be in the studio. There will be Downton Abbey on the DVD player and chips & salsa at the ready. Drake will be tucked under the sewing table keeping me company and DH is heading out of town.
