Working on Windmills again, (be nice, I could certainly be Tilting at Windmills here, in fact that will be my title the next time I talk about this project.).
I've been laying all these out, trying different combinations of dark/light, prints/colors, etc. Not sure the pattern interplay between the blocks comes out very well using all prints together like this, so I might have to end up cutting hand-dyed solids to go with all the prints. I think the blocks that have prints with close-to-solids read much better. But I probably need to lay out even more to see what the overall effect is with a bigger selection.
More thinking about this one is in order. I don't want to go to all the work of piecing this thing and not even be able to see the pattern you know? So it might be a matter of laying this out very carefully instead of sewing it all randomly together (which is of course my first and admittedly lazy instinct). What do you think?
