Four Corners

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

I think you are doing just terrific on these blocks and your choice of 30's fabrics was inspired. I can hardly wait to see all of these put together in a quilt. Finished my first block on second set of Just Take 2 today. It went really well.

Playing with colors at times can be challenge. Your block's colorways look great, as well as your piecing is too!
