here are blocks 7, 8 and 9 from the Tula Pink City Sampler QA that i am doing.
block #7 gave me a bit of trouble with picking the right fabric. like i said in an earlier post i am trying hard to stick to Tula's color choices because i love her quilt from the book. the browns in block #7 were not the issue for me. it was the four corners that i just couldn't seem to get right. in Tula's block the corners are Parisville. in looking for color i picked the following for the corners the 1st time.
when it came time to sew the block i wasn't feeling my 1st choice. it was reading too much teal/blue and not enough green for me. so i came up with a 2nd choice and made the block.
still not 100% happy with it but in the overall scheme of the quilt with 100 blocks it shouldn't be an issue.
then i came across this.
a roll-up of Parisville.
side note - i have moved all of my mail sewing stuff to my new location however i have not moved all of my fabrics to my new location. i thought all of my Tula fabric was in one container but to my surprise and luck it wasn't.
i un-sewed block #7. found the exact fabric in the roll-up. cut it and sewed it and now i am at peace with block #7.
in this case the third time really is the charm.
i have blocks 10, 11 and 12 cut and ready to sew.
