Time to Fish  Block #5

Originally uploaded by Q_uilted T_hrifted

I am really enjoying making this quilt top! I had a majority of this laid out last night but reworked almost the entire thing this morning after I cut out the fish word fabric.  Last night I finished block #4. I took some quick pics but they are dark. I set the two yellows next to each other and realized the one had gone overboard with the brightness!

Garage Sale fabrics picked up last week

There was too much yellow in this block. I took a few of the really bright yellow blocks out and I will add them to another one.  I am swimming in fabric everywhere in my living room. It drives my Mr crazy!!!

As I was working on this second yellow block I set it along side the red one and worked on running some red into the yellow and lining up some of the blue so the diagonal ran into the next block.  On the next green block I did not do this. I worked in a different area and focused on having the disappearing nine patch. The dark blocks will read as a nine patch from a distance. The yellow blocks will not. This way there will be a diagonal running through the entire quilt. You will see it better as the quilt gets larger.
