Now that all the blocks are complete for Gramercy & Friends, I've laid them out on the design wall.
I've been moving the blocks around. What do you think of this layout?
I'm trying to avoid having the same fabric in two blocks next to each other. I'm also trying for balance in value placement - some of the blocks "read" lighter and some read darker or bolder, so I'm spreading them around so they don't look too heavy all in one area. Also, there are several blocks with orange or gold in the light background fabrics, and I'm trying to spread those around, too.
Hmm, looking at this photo, maybe I should switch the bottom right block and the one above it.
Sorry for the badly lit photo - I can't back up any farther from my design wall. This layout stretches from the ceiling to about 8" up from the floor, and it's always dark down near the floor. Plus the cutting table is in the way, you can see part of it at the bottom.
This week I hope to get the sashing done and maybe get the flimsy together. If I can do that, I can count the fabrics out in February!
