I wanted to do some stash reduction and to make something fairly simple because it has been so busy around here lately that I haven't had time to do much sewing. I don't want to start something complicated until I have a bit more time. I saw this project on Katherine's blog, Quilter Going Bananas and thought it was just the ticket. It is a bit more complicated than I had anticipated but thanks to the design wall I can step back and take a good look before sewing the pieces together.
Since I saw this picture I have already moved the blue and navy piece at the bottom. There is not enough contrast between the two lighter blues. I took a black and white photo to be sure of my values but they were all too blurry to post. I saw what I needed to change though.
Looking back at Katherine's instructions, I think I have some major mistakes here...no wonder hers looked better. Hmmm...

Mistakes? Well, I don't see them!! You're doing something I would certainly never tackle.

That pattern was the second quilt that I ever made. I really loved it and have always wanted to make another one. I'm glad you are doing it for me, my list is too long!
