Work in (non)progress

You know how you get a great idea (maybe in the shower) and can’t wait to work on it?  I had this idea yesterday morning of lots of shades of dark purple with a few little pops of yellow.  Somewhat inspired by the work of Yoshiko Jinzenji – I love how some of her piecing lines blur the background fabric with the pieced fabric.

So I dig around in my scrap bags, because I don’t really have much purple fabric.  I found quite a lot of fabrics left over from this quilt – which was perfect because that is exactly the color I had in mind!

So I cut squares out of the scraps and added a few wonky bits of yellow to some of them.  Then I made a bunch of half square triangle blocks and put it on my design wall – yay!

Not so much 🙁  Pretty underwhelmed here.  So I moved the pieces around some –  it only got worse!

Staring and thinking in progress…

    Hmmm… maybe if you added a few more bits of yellow, or thin strips of another color??? I think you are onto something but right now the purples need to be broken up a bit more. Keep at it and good luck!!

    I'd maybe try them in a 'row' of sorts, slightly off centre and very random
