Design Wall Monday 08/19/13
Above is the latest project that I've been working on (for a while). It is a paper foundation pieced block that I am turning into a pillow. I decided to back the block with thin batting so the seam allowances wouldn't show through the white fabric. I knew I wanted to use grey and yellow/gold, but I really struggled with the choosing the fabrics. Too many choices in my stash. I wanted the two yellow fabrics to have a little more contrast, so it would have a bit of a 3D effect in that area, but in the end, I think the values are too close together to achieve that look. Oh well, I think it still came out pretty nice.
There was no Mystery Mondays clue last week, but there should be a new one today, so nothing to show on that front.
