Week 4, with enthusiasm

Brenda from Scraps and Strings with my second attempt at the block party. (I was in a car accident last Friday afternoon and couldn't wrap my head around figuring out the last block. That says more about me then the block. I feel better now.) I'm using the same marbled background fabric as in Week 2, this time with a sueded looking deep rose hand dye. I changed the value placement on HST on the outside, making the block into more of a star. I quite like it this way. It sort of looks like tulips with this colourway.

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better. The marble fabric goes very nicely with the deep rose fabric.

as I said over on your blog -- LOVE the effect of your colour placements... the "flowers" in the corners realy speak to me.

I like the way you switched light and dark -- makes the star show up so much better.

Glad to hear your feeling better. I'm really liking the marble fabric you're using. The solid color makes it shine.
