Making some blocks............


After I finished all of the chores of the day I sliced the 16 patch stratas that I had sewn the night before.  There are 2 blocks from each strata.





I sewed one of each of the blocks.  The contrast is a little higher than I thought it was going to be.  I'm not sure I like the one with the gold check in the top row but I'll wait until I have the other 9 stratas sewn and blocks made before I make a decision to take anything out.

Beautiful neutrals! Yes, that gold one does stick out a bit now, but it could be the spark the quilt needs when all the blocks are done. I will look forward to seeing if it makes the cut or not. LOL!!

The gold check does "jump out" compared to all the others.

Smart to wait and see. You are off to a good start!

Love the textures of all these batiks and wonder if the gold will not be as obvious when there are more of them. Patty

I was unsure if you meant you didn't care for the block itself, or whether you weren't happy with its placement. Whichever, I agree with the "wait and see" approach...

Pretty. I love the muted, warm colors.
