Separating the two lighter colors seemed the most balanced approach. I like the dark brown complementing the mustard, the red complementing the olive, and the two organics of grass and leaves sharing the center. The rows have been picked up and are ready to be sewn.
Meanwhile Saturday's sewing focused on the Quilts for Kids quilt. I had previously set aside with the kit a nice piece of batting which turned out to be plenty long--but not wide enough. Grr. So that led to a flurry of hunting through leftover pieces of batting to find the same type, then zig zagging them together, followed by pinning, quilting, making and applying binding late last night. Today I finished up the binding and sewed on the label.
Purple is a hard color to photograph. It is now washed and ready to send back. Cleaning up the cutting table, I was distracted by rearranging the the design elements again on paper. At times like this I wish I EQ'd!
