|This guy has a swell bird photography setup!|
With more time in my studio, I'm plugging along with the Star Flower quilt, which I've decided to name "Night Garden." Only seven more blocks remain to be made to complete the bottom row of star flowers.
|Working on the final row of "main" blocks for "Night Garden," based on the "Star Flower" pattern.|
Generally, I cut my fabrics a little at a time until I'm pleased with the colors and values. Now, in deciding on my final blocks, I hope to add another of each of the blocks that read as beigy-green. (Top row, second in from right. Bottom row, third in from left.)
If I add those lights, will I lose the effect of dark fabrics almost fading into black?
My final need for feedback involves the brightest block: If I add another bright orange/magenta hand-dye like the one in the center, would it be too obviously "two"?
|Is this guy too lonely? Is two too many? Three would probably skew the quilt to my usual "brights" palette, something I'm trying to get away from here.|
