Last year STLMQG had a BOM challenge where we picked one spoke of the color wheel and used only that color plus neutrals to make the challenge block each month. A different skill or technique was featured each month. I chose yellow-green for my color and found a range of values to work with, plus black and white. Here's my block from the month we were to fussy cut something; I fussy cut my Dresden center.
The challenge resulted in a random selection of blocks, only unified by color. Now it's time to do something with them. My plan is to puzzle them together a la Gypsy Wife, and fill in with black and white strips.
First step: throw everything up on the wall.
Second step: Run away screaming.
Third step: Make some filler pieces and units.
Third step: Work on rearranging blocks and elements and see if I can make anything cohesive out of this.
Not there yet, but this is the state of the wall today:
Still needs work. I need to make the background black & white strips and spread them around, so I can see where I have contrast and where I need visual breaks. A lot more playing with bits and parts is in order here before this comes together.
