Another Workspace Wednesday

This week's photo highlights the beginnings of this month's project for my Jo Morton Little Women's Club meeting. When I pulled fabrics for it (during the end stages of our family scourge) I thought I would ultimately like my choices and how the project would turn out.
Right now, I'm not so sure! If I step away for a day- it doesn't look so bad, but when I'm working on it I really doubt if this is what I had intended. These little blocks are giving me fits. Everything measures out just fine, but when I put them together into the 3" final block- I will lose points adding the sashing.
I think I need to just put this one away for a few days and give it and myself a rest.
If I'm going to struggle to get it "perfect" I am going to have to work with some happier colors!

On another note, I've finished the first six blocks for the Patriots in Petticoats BOM.
Stay will be posted either tomorrow night or Friday.

It is funny how our fabric choices can look so good one day and not as much so in a couple days. Some people pin their designs up on a design wall and let the colors mull a bit before making the final selection. Me, I just plunge in and hope for the best.

Looks good to me, but I know what you mean. Sometimes it is just best to walk away for a bit and come back to it later on!

Looks beautiful to me, but I know exactly what you mean! 6 blocks...awesome! :-)

I like the fabrics you have chosen. Just step back from it for a few days. Reproduction fabrics aren't the brightest of fabrics! I hate when my work gets muddled down with mistakes. That is when I know I need to do something else!
