Out side the Block Again


I finally got back in the sewing room for a bit today. I re-dyed the orange triangles with brown. It still looked a bit too orange so I added a bit of olive green with low water immersion so it would be mottled. I like it much better now. I sewed it together today and now I have to decide whether it needs a border or not. I have some dark brown that might look good as a narrow border or I could use a wider border of a different color. Decisions, decisions.

No matter if you choose a border or not...I absolutely love where this is right now! Those one-of-a-kind hand dyes are so rewarding sometimes, aren't they!

I love the look of this, with the darker orange/green. Very complimentary.

I like it just as it is. The setting triangles act as a border for me. Very nice.
