Apparently I am much more creatively stunted than I originally thought. I was having a good time sewing pieces and strips together and then panic set in when it was time for the block to be assembled


My "uh-oh" moment.


My block finished. But I'm not too happy with it. It doesn't have the abandon I wanted. I may need to put it aside for a day and go back and look at it again.

I love the previous post by Victoria. Possibly sewing outside of the box may take more practice than I thought, maybe 15 minutes a day will do the trick!

It's fine! Try making one more CUT through the whole thing, it will add yet another LAYER with strips... use a different contrasting color, and you've got it. There is no right or wrong way to make these... Love those brihgts!

You are not 'stunted'! Those colours and fabrics are brilliant! I agree with Victoria, one more strip (diagonally from threequarters up left to threequarters down right side?)and it will look fantastic - it has loads of energy!

I like the colors and contrast with the textures you have in here. Keep playing!

You are fine! If I can do this you can too. Hey Look! You HAVE done it! LOL.

And you know what, it will look perfect in the middle of all the others!

glen: yes, abandon does take practice~!

Its coming along......why not cut it apart and add another color or shape if you really aren't happy with it........
Its fun though isn't it?

Happy Sewing

I like it, too, ... just the way it is. The black is bold and deliberate. But wouldn't it be interesting to see what would happen if you tried V's suggestion?
