    I tried the light to medium to dark and I think it's working. I wanted to lay it out to see what direction to head next. So--more darker greens to expand that line, then to move to green/blue to end in darker blues is the plan. I used some of the fabrics for darks in the light squares--for lights in the dark squares. Did you follow that weak explanation? :roll: :lol:

    Here are two angles--can you see the movement? Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't. :?

    Circles and stars? :?: :?: :?:

    I'll find the photo of the original pattern.... be right back...

    Found it!

    BUT--I changed something that may be effecting the movement. I changed the small triangles on the corners to dark fabrics rather than light. Here's the difference:

    I think the change slowed the movement--but that's okay--I needed to do what I needed to do. :roll: :wink:

    Looks great, and if you're having difficulty seeing the circles, just squint...

    I really see the movement on the side with the dark triangles in the corners. But I really like all you have done. :) Keep us posted on it as you finish it.

    Karla---I LOVE it!!! I can see the movement AND I love the progression from light to dark you have done.

    What size are the blocks? (I know you have probably told us-but I forget :D ) I am trying to get a perspective on the size of the quilt, so far.

    I keep looking at the circles in the original pattern--but they don't show up in mine. In mine I can see the circles around the stars... but not the circle made from parts of the stars.... such a difference it makes when a small change is made. But, mine looks more like a lake, the original is a pond. :wink:

    I cut out the strips for my Triple Irish Chain tonight. :D

    That's going to be a really beautiful quilt!!! I can't believe how you see and design things! I love the light to dark, and wouldn't ever have thought of it!

    Just a minute - you finished your watercolor, started this one, and you cut out another? Do you ever slow down?

    Jeepers, you are amazing, barnbum and so is your work.

    Well--much of the watercolor floral was made before school was out--I had to make 20+ more blocks and figure out the lay out. Walk Through the Park was all cut the last week of school. So--Kayaking on the Lake and the Triple Irish Chain are the only two I'll have done completely over summer break. I haven't had any all sew days. The weather's been cool--so I'm outside with the horses. When it's rainy/storming--I'm usually moving horses in/out. BUT--this week has been HOT so yesterday I put the horses in stalls under fans and sewed for two hours. Plus--I've kayaked more than ever this summer :D :D :D :D so that's been taking potential sewing time--but that's okay by me. :wink:

    Once school starts my sewing opportunities will reduce greatly. So--I'd love to finish these two tops--and get everything to the quilters in September.

    It is getting dark earlier now though--it was 8:30 last night. So--horses will be tucked in by 9:00 at the latest. Hmm--that will get me into the house more. :wink:

    I have to say your work is amazing. I see the circles and the stars and the movement is wonderful. I really like the transition from light to dark. AMAZING!!!
