Wow...really nice looking. One comment....a few of the block have dark backgrounds with only a hint if yellow and it detracts from the balance in my view. Useable but place them carefully. My eye was drawn to them right away.
Thanks GGal for the insights.

When I posted the first 45, someone noted that I had a problem as there was only one or two with the minimal-yellow and dark edges, so I worked on getting a few more into the mix. I think that will help provide a little "cloud-effect" amidst all the bright sun of this quilt, much like the muddy-blocks in the FWS ... and give the eye a place to rest. After all, IRL my eyes are photophobic! :D
