MY ISN'T THIS BETTER!

Well hello fellow quilters from places both snowy and not:

Like lots of us, I've been working on Bonnie Hunter's Roll, Roll Cotton Bowl...

You may remember my post about this block:



After seeing how the green did NOT provide sufficient contrast, I changed to this color combination:



'no problem', said I - I only need to make another SIX HUNDRED HST's, and unsew about ten blocks, and sew them again - all the way to the center block... NO PROBLEM.... EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK....
But now it's starting to come together................




I absolutely love the way the colors play, especially the orange and the red...
in short - I absolutely love it.......
and only have another 300 HST'S to go............
thanks, Bonnie, for a fabulous mystery quilt.
Kate

Much better, especially with the alternate blocks. Lots of work to re-do--not everone would. Good for you--you'll enjoy it even more when it is done.

From the snowy East,

I've lived in the Southwest enough to really love orange and red and turquoise together! That does look like turquoise in the picture, is it? Anyhow, I'm loving the way it's coming together too, and I'm sure it's getting to the fun part where you really want to get it done. What a fun quilt. Good for you!

I think I would have liked the green but the way your blocks are coming together is stunning! The change in the colors was definitely the way to go.
