I LOVE talking about blocks, studying blocks, and playing with them in Photoshop... I am always on a quest for great blocks and trying to figure out what makes them so great ... So I started this companion blog that will be devoted to this quest. But also check out my regular blog at http://olderrose.blogspot.com

Problem solving on hanky quilt....
I knew from the very beginning that I needed a LOT of blue to compensate for the power of the red and I am a long way from that point yet...
Right now the red and blue have about equal weight.
I will have a lot more blue when all the birds are on and when the beading is done but the rose lower right is just too large. If I remove it all together it leaves the block unbalanced. So I ordered another hanky with a smaller rose to replace it.
Today Tip: You will find often you need to butt hankies up against each other like the two on the left.. The color, fabric and textures of the two are not the least compatible.
