Colour Revisited

I said I would take a picture of my four patches - and I finally did.

There's a saying that done is better than perfect. This little top is about half completed, and it is nowhere near perfect. But I am happy to say that my corners are matching better than they used to.

And I haven't totally given up the alternating dark/light pattern. However, this particular top is mainly a jumble of squares. I'm considering it a learning experience. And one thing I learned is that the 2" squares are not all 100% cotton. Some of them shrunk a little bit when I ironed them. It makes life interesting.

I've posted a pic before of the top for a small cat quilt which I made. It's totally scrappy. There is no logic whatsoever to the colour in that quilt, and I'll admit to thinking that perhaps I didn't do it "right".

So, I started making fourpatches from 2" squares, alternating light and dark. It's a more traditional fourpatch. And I found it boring!

Now, I'm back to mixing up colours. I'll take a picture of some of my fourpatches tomorrow and post it.

Warning - my piecing isn't great. :-)
