This was a quick set of blocks! I finished the last 20 tonight before turning my attention to the Kaleidoscope blocks. You can just see the Quilt as you Go blocks for Australia in the back corner of this photo -- I pieced a couple of them before starting in on my blocks.
What does one do when blocks won't play nicely with each other, separate them of course. Since I don't like sashing blocks I usually turn to Sharon Craig's Twist N Turn method.
The colors and fabric in this photo are not shown very well, my hallway at 3:45AM is not the best place to be taking photos. The dark fabric is a subtle dark blue/turquoise print that picks up the colors from the blocks. I'd discarded it as too dark earlier this week when I was looking for a border but between the blocks it's working well.
I stopped working early -- I'm too tired to continue but not tired enough to sleep -- I'm happy with what I got done tonight so I'm going to veg now.
