Simple Things Quilt Along


I finished this weeks blocks for the Simple Things quilt along.  These are the last of the center blocks.


I put my center together and discovered I don't like how all those little brown bits stand out so much.
They were a part of the fabric group but I really wish I had left them out.  I thought about ripping them out and replacing them with another fabric but decide NO too much trouble.
I do like the little quilt even with the brown.
I haven't made very many blocks this size and they are so cute.  There are quite a lot of seams to match up and which way to press the seams has always been a bit confusing to me.  I never seem to have them in the right direction.


Next week we will work on the borders.

I love how the stars are scattered around, makes for a lot of interest. I had to really look to see the 'brown' but I like it, the different values give it interest and it keeps your eyes moving around. Very cute!

If I were you I wouldnt change a thing. It looks really good and very pretty. I had to look really hard to find the brown bits and agree with Sharon that it keeps your eyes moving around the quilt. Its great :)

Great quilt, and I think the brown in there is just fine. It wasn't noticeable to me until I read your post. I like it just as it is!
