Kelly Green and Some Revisions

Another chance to use green and purple!  So many different ways these colors look great together.

Because I didn't use a template for my blocks but let each block evolve, my blocks didn't work together as well as they would if I had done it like everyone else.  So I decided a few blocks needed revisions/remakes; the original peach faded while bright orange screamed!  So the new peach has more defined values and the new orange has softer colors around it.  I also reworked mint green as there wasn't enough contrast.   When I get home from this vacation, I will redo pink also as it was too unique with modern swirly blacks and whites.

What a fun exercise this has been to explore new colors (peach and mint) and to work with treasured old favorites!

Each of these blocks is so beautiful. You have a unique way with made fabric and colour.

It has been great fun having your blocks live on my studio wall for a visit. I love each of them seperately and the way they all work so well together. Can't wait to see the revision of the bubblegum pink.
