I just finished the blocks for my Scrappy Trips Around The World...while watching a David Bromstad show, The Ultimate Color Guide, on HGTV. I've got the blocks up on the design wall and have been moving them and moving them and moving them. Arrrggghh. I decided to take a photo of it to get a different perspective.
I can see room for improvement. There is a "light" spot in the center...sigh. I'm also trying to figure out what in the world I can use for a border that will compliment it. I thought black, like the Bargello Bowl quilt, but it Just...Looks...Wrong. I'm also wondering about making it larger. Hmmmmmmmmmm........
So I took a break and went outside for some different eye candy. :-) It's been dark and rumbling thunder for about two hours now so colors look more intense. Nice!
Petunia from a seed packet. Who knew they'd come out like this!
Hot pink geraniums. Yum.
Marigolds, also from a seed packet. More green than flower, but oh those flowers!
Sunflowers next door in front of a dark pink crape myrtle. (I have to get me some of those!)
My neighbor tells me these are Four O'Clocks. I have them everywhere!
Rain on the Bleeding Heart. That there is the total amount of rain we got....sigh.
Hard to improve on nature, isn't it! :-)
