Today's block was a challenge, which seems to be a recurring theme around here.
The block on the calendar was done in gold, cream, and grays. I tried to make it a happier version, and the first time around the middle square color just wasn't right. I took it out, put a new one in, and it still wasn't right so I started over. Sometimes when choosing colors a person has to test it to see if it really works or not. I do like it better this way. The squares that are cut diagonal twice into four triangles seem to give me trouble too. Must be all those bias cuts or something. I have a feeling once again it is all practice. I know I'm going to have more of them through the year, and I am finding out that sometimes slowing way down does make for a better piece. This is a 9-inch block and number 25 of 366.
I'm linking today with WIP Wednesday. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
