    Also that is my favorite color, blue everywhere in the house.
    Thank you everyone for the lovely comments. Some of the blocks haven't been the easiest to make so some of them look a little wonky in the pictures.
    I think everyone here has been tested by the blocks and there's no quilt police here. Yes we admire sharp points, knowing that they come with lots of work; and they don't come with lots of hard work, too. If you haven't noticed some of us have used substitute blocks for whatever reason. You're welcome to do that too.

    W4Me ... the blue seems to glow over its duller buddies. Nicely chosen mixture ... and great FC centre! And yes, I am still rooting for the burgundy to make an appearance!

    Thank you dublb.
    QuiltE - Thanks. The blue looks darker on the design wall. Amazing the things a camera picks up. You won't have too long to wait for the burgundy as I'm planning to do some two colour blocks so I can combine the sage with each of my other batiks. It has to happen eventually, so why not at the beginning?

    And here is Arizona. I've decided to concentrate on two colour blocks for a bit so I can see the sage combined with each of the other batiks.

    Now that one really glows! Do the variances in the colors in your batiks pose a challenge as well?

    Thank you for following along oksewglad. I appreciate the encouragement. I'm actually ignoring any variances, for the most part, and just letting the pieces fall where they may.

    I agree .... a real nice glow!
    I never saw the orange in the sage, til I saw this block ... it has really drawn it out.
    Likewise how the orange pulled the orange out of the brown batiks in Bright Hopes.
    One of the amazing things of batiks!

    W4Me ... Good plan to work on the two colour blocks to help with a balance.
    Do you have oodles of sage to keep it as your constant?

    QuiltE - the orange in the sage batik looked really soft brown/tan in the clover block. It appears it was a good choice for a constant. Originally, I chose it because it was a soft colour and seemed like it would play nice. Now, I see all the other colours I never noticed before. And even those colours seem to change.

    Thanks JeanieG - I'm glad to have you following along.

    Definitely a good choice!!!

    You've seen it working already where you have used 2 with the sage ... the more you do that, the more the blending and unity will happen, and will help to pull the singles (with the sage) together with all.

    Beautiful blocks w4me! I love the sage fabric, it really has a lot of colours you wouldn't notice without using other fabrics with it. I hope this makes sense

    It makes perfect sense Anael as I'm noticing colours in the sage that I never saw before, too.
