So I finished my first block for the In Color Order Block of the Month project.
I am DYING over the fact that I can't get a picture that does a good job of showing the colors. In all the photos I took the colors just look washed out, but in real life the turquoise and green are very mellow and pretty, especially against my gray wall.
Again...previous homeowners...gray fake wood paneling...WHY?
Anyway, I think it turned out nicely. I hung it on my wall just to see the colors and the size, but now I almost don't want to take it down. Even my husband likes it...he said it was very geometric, a diamond inside a square inside an octagon inside a square.
I wish I didn't have to wait until February for the next block. At least I have projects to keep me busy...I have my rail fence quilt (although I don't think it'll read as a rail fence quilt, it'll still be pretty) and a project to do for the Metafilter Craft Exchange. Plus, this weekend I'm going to go out to my parents' house and my mom has a stack of fabric for me from another quilter who's cleaning out her stash. I'm so excited...I have so much to do!
