Since we are still in our catch up week, I wanted to get everyone's opinion on my week 1 block. As I mentioned previously, I was disappointed that there was so little contrast in the values between the red and the brown fabrics - they seem to almost blend together. I really liked the colors that I had chosen, but they weren't working. Here are three different options... My original block is on the left in these pictures and the options on the right. I haven't glued anything down yet - so please tell me what you think - or if you have any other ideas I should try. Or if I'm crazy to be worrying about this at all! Thank you!
The light green provides nice contrast, but I think I miss the red.
Because I love the idea of the red, I found a lighter spot of the fabric from which to make my foundation block.
Not crazy about the orange middle - seems to clash with the amber outer pieces.
