first off, we cross in to the section of triangles. whoot whoot!
secondly, this is when i decided i really needed a third selection of fabric to regularly choose from to balance out my blocks. knowing that the dimples line of fabric existed in many of the same colors and blended as a perfect accent to the fun of the foundations fabric and the excellence that is moda grunge. it also help me not feel so "stuck" and relieved the stress of potentially running out of foundations fabric.
and last of all, this section also features the first blocks that i decided to redo before i could ever let them cross the face of the interwebs. well, that isn't 100% true, since i also let the rejected versions get posted to instagram on the day each one was to be shared as well. overall, i am so much happier with how the redone versison fits with my other blocks in the quilt so far, so if you're not on instagram, you might just have to guess which one it is ;)
or just not wanting to click on over to instagram?
well, blocks 31 & 40 used to look like this for a bit.
i really liked the dark with number 31, but as a whole in the quilt it just felt really heavy and the more i tried to balance them out (like by adding it in to block 40) i just really didn't like it. my eye kept going to the dark section and not to the fun dancing girls given to me by angelina or the cuteness of winnie the pooh and all his fun faces. midtone gray is apparently as dark as i can get on this project without it being obvious.
