Today I decided to leave my 5"-square-comfort zone. Its about time to challenge myself. Hopefully I can swallow this bite.
This block I made today as a test block. The pattern is from one of my fav. books, "Quilts from the Heart II" by Karin Renaud. The pattern calls for scraps in blue and lavender, mixed with cream. My quilt will be lavender, pink and a bit of burgandy. As I'm waiting for my order with the cream kona cotton, I replaced the cream fabric by white with a small lavender and pink pattern. What do you think, does this make it too busy? Instead of different coloured squares in the center, I used just one batik fabric to try to calm it down a little.
Your honest opinions please! Too busy or do you like it the way it is?
