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