I thought I'd alternate my string tumblers with multi colored ones -- yuck! Too busy.
So I decided to try a kind of mottled solid -- much better (even better than this photo shows) and surprisingly as I put the other pieces on the board -- I'm liking how they look together so I guess I'm making two tumbler quilts. In quilting it pays to stay flexible and change things when they're not working out like you'd like.
AND, I'm continuing to make half square triangles and assemble blocks for the Stars and Pinwheels and I'm really liking this one too! I have about 11 of the 30 blocks done.
