Summer's Blue Circle
I worked a bit with Summer's blue circle yesterday. I'm not at all satisfied yet but I'm not sure why. Maybe the two pieces that match the center of the circle are too big or too bland. I may have to toss them and try again. Also maybe the two vertical blue strips don't have enough contrast. I'll be doing a lot more work on this one. I am trying to keep it mostly in blues, which is not my normal way of doing things.
I'm thinking that with the other circle I might try several borders with mitered corners. Because I like the simplicity of the middle I want to highlight it. Then it would probably end up as a pillow top rather than a wall hanging.
