Well, I just abandoned a pattern I thought I wanted to do with a jelly roll, and I have laid this out. What do you think? Does this look okay, or is it too bright? I already had the 8 1/2 inch blocks sewn together, each with four strips. I stared at the pattern I thought I wanted for two weeks, but I just couldn't get interested in it. I guess I will leave this up a few days and stare at it.
