    Great blocks everyone. I'm loving all the different colors and placement of the colors to give the same blocks such different looks. I think I may remake this one, I don't see enough contrast. What do you think?Name:  SYE 8.jpg

    Jan ... how does it look when paired with the other blocks? As it sits, I do see contrast but its subtle (in a good way!). If you are making placemats I would leave it as is. If you are pairing it with the other in a quilt let's see them all together as the subtle contrast might get lost.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Thanks, ladies. On my design wall I have one other block that reads "solid" like this one. You're right-I'll wait til they're all done and see if it still fits in. I thought of using a Clorox Bleach Pen and lightening up on of the inner sections, may still be an option.

I love, love, love all the different color combinations we are using- all are great, some are down right fabulous! like---gee, wish I had thought of that one. great, fun project- I am so glad I decided to participate in this one.

    If you useable bleach pen be sure to neutralize the fabric afterwards as the bleach continues to eat at the fabric and will weaken it. Vinegar or hydrogen peroxide followed by soapy water will stop the bleach.

    Beautiful 'eye' candy to see this morning on this site. January SYEs are still a work in progress; meanwhile I can admire the ones posted.

    Oooh, FrustratedQ, love the fussy cut corner pieces. I've tried fussy cutting when paper piecing and they always end up backwards or upside down. Need to practice that technique some more.

    Here is my Diamonds block for January. Unlike all of the earlier blocks, it doesn't have a solid, round center so placement was a little of a puzzle and I'm not sure that the yellow really does the trick but that's what it is for now.Name:  photo-53.JPG

    I love your block-the yellow really adds interest. I'm not sure about this block the way mine turned out either, maybe it's because as you mentioned there's no center. I guess we wait til the end to see if it plays nicely with it's fellow blocks. Loving your red/black/white.

    GardenGal, I love how your yellow shows off the perfect job of piecing in the center! Somehow, it all works together in my eyes, but its yours that counts. I would vote it high honors.

    Hi Everyone, I'm so very glad that all of you have continued with the posting of the blocks for this month...

    Some fantastic blocks here...

    Ggal, I like the way the butter yellow softens the colors...I think it will go well with the others...

    Jan, I would wait to see how this block blends in with the others before using bleach on it...if you had to you could add a lighter center to it...

    You might be surprised once it is all laid out. You have a nice background to tie it all together. They are very pretty.
