My blocks so far, I decided on a strippy quilt but want to try it on the diagonal too! More blocks to make anyway. Just had a horrendous storm so staying downstairs for now.
Having problem loading my photos but I’ll try again.

I always line up by color according to color wheel (YORPBG) with tertiaries and pastels (pink, lavender, aqua) in between before mixing them in the quilt. My next step is to mix the blocks with the Kaffe print corners.). THEN stand back and look through your camera lens. Which color jumps out to you?

Not sure what my final layout will be, but it is lots of fun playing with different options.

I have decided to put my blocks on point and to keep the Brassica fabric intact as a whole square as I love it! On the triangles around the blocks I have decided to use some pastel Batik from my stash, trying to pick up the colors from the Brassica. Then I will construct a small border using the left over solids; still working on that design and will post it when the sewing of the blocks is complete. I loved working with the Brassica colors and the color wheel! It has taught me a lot about color. I am new to sewing these types of blocks and it has forced me to really be careful in my cutting and sewing. Thank you! All skills that I need to work on.

My Whirlwind block has the same problem. It doesn't look like it belongs, even though I like the color combo. very much. I am going to wait to see if I can fit it in, but might just make another block with the same colors, just in case.

Your blocks look beautiful, Judy. Maybe another one with the dark orange? Karen

Trying to get my color balance, do you see colors I need more of?

Added two blocks with red but now the Whirlwind block (red/purple/blue) looks wrong because it doesn't have any outer white pieces. Just FYI, I HATE to write in books so I use sticky notes next to the cutting instructions for color and size notes.

I agree with you about the colors in the hand dyes. I’m going to use some free spirit solids from my stash in the remaining blocks to liven it up a bit!

Several of the Brassica fabrics had the colors aqua green and fuchsia in them, but the solids in the kit didn't include these colors. I really wanted to include these colors. I discovered I had some Setacolor fabric paint that had these two colors. So I painted small pieces of white fabric with these two colors to use in my blocks. You can see this painted fabric in the first picture of the Single Wedding Ring and Sawtooth Star Variation.

My daughter had given me a pack of 5" squares of Kaffee Paperwieght fabric and had no idea how I would use them except maybe for eyes in a collage quilt or art quilt. Of course the colors coordinated with the colors in the Brassica, so I decided to use them in the middle squares of a few blocks. You can see three blocks like this in the second picture.

I really didn't like the dark brownish green fabric. That is an ugly fabric to me, but I wanted to challenge myself to include it. The third picture shows the Star of Hope and the New Album Block using this color. I think once the Brassica fabrics are added it will look okay. I am a little uncertain about the blue I added in the Star of Hope, but I think it will work. I have Jenny Beyer's book on color where she explains that any colors can work together if they are bridged together.

I LOVE these blocks...the Jane Sassaman prints are so colorful and elegant with the solids in the blocks. Good choice!
