plan B

this block from Pat Sloans 
winter solstice is making me nuts
I was going to use this for  the basket
love the raindrops but 
not in the center here

tried darker
and loved the darkness
but not the print with the others

found this in the stash
and decided to try and fussy cut
bands of color

this is where it is at
I am thinking I will stick with it
(those little pieces are a booger
to work with)
and maybe add some dark flowers in 
my basket to offset

I had wanted to bring in the turquoise 
in this block to have some
variety of the blues
when I am done

any other suggestions?

Oh that is a tough one. Sometimes trying to get blues play together is tough.

I think you made a good choice. The block is pretty but I am partial to blues.

I like how that basket goes with the other fabrics...a few little florets in the basket..blues can be tough, beautiful as they ar...hugs, Julierose
