Since I'm still mulling over how to quilt my tree skirt, I thought I would lay out all of those pinwheel blocks I made and start putting that quilt top together.
I definitely need to focus on how the light and dark of the pinwheels interact with one another. When I switch it to black and white, you can see what I mean:
I need to find a balance between the lighter and darker pinwheels. I also discovered that I have 10 blocks where the pinwheels go in the wrong direction (those are not pictured above). See what I mean?
When I put them side by side, I'll have white against white instead of white against color. So, I've got a date with Jack the (seam) Ripper to fix those and then see if I can come up with a balanced layout.
