    Well, not my best work, that's for sure! I'm not going to rip it out tho :lol:

    At 1st I had all the same color shades put together and couldn't arrange them very well, so hubby suggested I mix it up abit. I ripped them apart and started over with the plates. This is how it looks now.

    Not sure what color the back or binding will be yet.

    Does it look too bad?

    I'm sorry, do you have the right picture posted? You said you mixed it up? I think mixing them up would look great!

    :lol: Yes, it's the right pic. What I mean't about mixing them up is originally, the plates were in all blues, yellows etc, one color plates. Now they are all of the colors in one plate.

    Here they are before I mixed them up

    It looks great! For the binding, what if you pieced it with your leftovers? Or would that be too "casual" for the plates? I think it would be fun tho'!

    Thanks, I struggled with this because I'm a match matchy person and this color scheme was way out of bounds for me.

    The pattern itself was extremely easy tho.
