The yellow block is done (I think). The colour scheme isn't one I would normally use but it's an interesting challenge to make myself think outside the box.
The next one I will work on is green and I must say the colours the Color Tool is suggesting are NOT what I would ever put together with it. I'm going to go with it though and see if I can get past my pre-conceived notion of what's right. Stay tuned!
Last time I promised I would tell you about a couple of the other 'tools' I am using for this particular project. I have two different sets of templates that I can use to mark stitch placement on my seams. One is from Sharon Boggon (look HERE) and the other set is made by 'Creative Impressions' (look HERE) and were created to accompany Kathy Seaman Shaw's book 'Stunning Stitches For Crazy Quilts'. The templates don't need to be used along with the book however. I use them as they are but also combine them in various ways to come up with my own designs. It's hard to get a decent picture of the templates...
