Em's Block #3

I went with Donna's idea of going from light to dark with different colors. I placed warm colors across from each other and cool colors across for each other, rather than do the color wheel thing. With only four colors to work with I felt skipping colors made it lose it's flow.

Interesting how all those colours actually work together! Great idea, Donna! And good for you, Emily, for going with this colour layout.

I like this concept and your centre block ties in all the colours. Good stuff!

its wonderful, and very interesting... I imagine it'd make a quilt much more interesting with the different cooured corners...

Wow, I like it! It looks like a whole different block!

I think this would make a great child's quilt. Like a big box of crayons. And what a great way to use up little strips of every color, too.

I like the way the block corners shade. This has really good possibilities for something larger

This is neat. I wonder how this color arrangement would play out in a full size quilt. I'm thinking there would be lots of movement.
