    Carrie, this block will be a show stopper in your quilt. The viewer's eye will immediately be drawn to it. Put it in a place that deserves the spotlight.

    The contrast is subtle with the darker fabrics but is perfect for this block.

    Fabulous blocks as usual.
    Lightning is complete. I used, gasp, orange for my second colour. It seemed appropriate. I was going to change up the centre row a bit as I find the block a little boring. But, once I saw the way the orange played, I decided it wasn't boring at all.

    It seems narrower at the bottom in the photo but it isn't. I took the pic at an angle and was too lazy to retake it.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

    WOW!! ... look at how the orange comes out of the sage!
    As you said before ... a real chameleon that sage is.

    Well Done .. W4Me!

    Thank you. And it was you who first called it a chameleon. And right you were.

    I like that block W4Me. The orange makes a boring block interesting and will add a pop of color to your quilt.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.

    Thank you janRN - there are a few brights in the mix now.

    QuiltE - several people mentioned the sage picking up the other colours but it turns out I was the first to use the term chameleon. Go figure.

    LIke Jan said, the orange makes it interesting. I didn't like the block but I like yours
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
