Quilt With Us

I guess it's been a week sence I posted anything. I've been busy working, and working on my quilt blocks. Today should have been my weekend but I was scheduled to work. After working six days straight I wasn't planning on working on my quilt tonight but it was sitting there at the table just calling me. So off I went to the table to cut some material and pieced another block. This quilt is a two block pattern and I've been ever so curious about how the second block will look with the first. I cut enough pieces to make half a block using the lighter materials that I bought for this project. Once I had them together, I didn't like it. So I've pieced together half of the second block and thought I'd post a couple pictures of the pieces. My only concern is that using the darker blue in the second block the way I have it will make the quilt overall look pretty dark. Tomorrow I think I will cut a few more of the medium and light blues just to see what they will look like together. The first picture is the two block combination and the second is just half of the second block.

Well, if you ask me, I think your balance of color is great! I like the movement between the blocks. You might start to like it if you get more blocks together. Good job!

I love the dark blue and agree that it will set off the other colors. I really love all the colors together.

Kathy, I am with the others. I think it is beautiful. There is enough light colours that the darker blue will set off the other colours.

I like it very much. Your color choices are lovely.................. I think as you piece more together and walk away from it, then turn and look from there, I think you will begin to like it much more so. We want to see more also!

Oh I wanted to say that I think you should get about 4 or 6 blocks together so we can see it better.

Kathy, I think your color choices are great and I think that dark color is perfect. It is so pretty.
