I started making Buckeye Beauty blocks months ago. They were a jumble of colors, which I usually love, but the layout seemed unsettling to me for some reason. (Click the link above if you want to see the jumble.)
I decided to try dividing the blocks into two groups: cool colors (primarily greens and blues) together and warm colors together. I haven't done anything with the warm colors but I laid out the greens and blues.
I realized I had a lot more green than blue blocks and that I was lacking blocks with light centers, so I set about making some more blocks in the blue/green range.
They're not sewn together yet. I don't know whether I'll like a quilt with blues and greens any more than I liked the jumbled-colors layout. I'll sew these together, lay them out, and then decide.
I have a little time to sew this week but I/we have some other higher priority activities to finish before next week. There's no deadline for these blocks or this quilt so a little time here and there, now and then works.
I'm looking forward to both older daughter and her family and younger daughter coming for Thanksgiving. It will be exhausting having three little ones here (ages 4, 2 1/2, and 10 months) but the joy of spending time with those "babies" will more than make up for any tiredness. What fun!
