"indian blanket" quilt is still looking cheery on my design wall, but i'd like to get it off there eventually. however, i've had lots of other projects prioritized above it lately, including a few finishes. my other hangup has been i couldn't decide what to do with my next row. this particular row has a mix of 4" and 8" triangles in three colors. the fabrics above are the ones i had originally slated for the row. but when i was cutting, the two low volume prints (smaller triangles) just didn't seem to have enough contrast between them. i decided this after i'd cut all the darn triangles.
at this point, i had tried everything i had at home that might remotely work.
so that meant a trip to the store.
this might seem like a tedious post, but i thought it might be helpful for someone else to see the selection process i went through. having learned about contrast in scale and color value helped me the most when making this choice. even a small vocabulary of words to guide an otherwise somewhat intuitive thought process really does help me make choices.
