Second colour layout
Inspired by Marlene's first block I wanted to make a second attempt at this block, making it more my own :-) The block on the left is the result. (the one on the right was my first try, following the colour layout from Quilter's Cache)
I like that, having done the block once, I was able to figure out what size to cut individual pieces, and so made this scrappy -- no speed piecing of those half square triangles.... I do like the completely different effect moving the red/pink placements around a little gave... I like that I was able to adjust and try out a few things, getting the block to be the right size... I don't particularly like the block though...
I'm off to focus on other quilting now until next Friday. I'm enjoying seeing everyone's blocks, and the differences created by our colour choices/layouts. I know there are a couple of others who are intending to post their blocks in the next few days, so my precision muse will live vicariously off them 'til Friday :-)
