Block Makover

WHY DO I KEEP HAVING TO LEARN THIS LESSON OVER AND OVER?????

AAAAARGGGGH

So - I chose my colors for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery, and decided to try to use mid-range colors in blue, coral, and celery - sounds lovely and gentle, doesn't it? Well, it turns out mostly washed out, especially the celery - egad!!! it looks like celery tastes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



So - a bit of unsewing, and I found this piece of bricky, smoky red that surprising plays well with the coral colors... and boom - shazam - this appears!



Unfortunately I made a lot of these blocks before I bowed to the inevitable .... so now there's lots of unsewing to do...

note to self: IT'S ABOUT CONTRAST.... CONTRAST.... CONTRAST

Happy ripping to me! Happy quilting to everyone else!

You are cracking me up.

I agree it does pop better without the celery.

It's so funny how things in our heads just don't turn up always like we thought they would. The red does look better. ...now what to do with all those HST's you have done!!!

I laughed when reading this--not because of your color choices. I chose purple for mine and kept referring to it as plum. You chose celery.

I ended up liking mine better. Maybe we both should have chosen chocolate and then we would have been completely in love!
