In the end I just couldn't do the matchy-matchy blocks (see yesterday's post). I played with the quarter blocks on the design wall and decided to group the blocks by value changes in the yellow backgrounds. The colors are truer on yesterday's photos too. This is all ready to sew together today.
We have broken the high temp records for 3 days in a row with the 60+ degree days. Now they are predicting 70 for Wednesday. I'm hoping the flowering trees and bushes don't get their buds all formed because we will get cold weather again starting next weekend.
