Some weeks the fabric choices for my Grandmothers Choice blocks are really quite difficult. And I end up thinking that I am trying too hard. Sometimes (hah! admit it, most every week this is what happens!) I create my own pressure to get that block done and photographed in the daylight so it can be posted on the Saturday. The result is that I can end up with a block that I am not happy with.
Such was the case this week. Once I redid block 25 I was a lot happier with it despite it being difficult to photograph. And that made me want to have another try with last week's block as well.
The common denominator in the two blocks was the green leaf on purple background fabric. This fabric should help as it uses both colors together but it seemed to be having the opposite result.
Several quilt friends that I talk with lately have been discussing the challenge of photographing their quilt blocks/quilts. The color on this shot is not terrific and nor is the (room) light distribution even. But it is surely enough to illustrate the progress to date.
Check back tomorrow when I will hopefully have something else to share with you.
