Taking this photo has helped me to see the bigger picture. I know by looking at the blocks butted up together like this, that I do not want to continue using the darker green fabric. I wanted this to be mostly pastels and those just don't look right to me. I am trying to use the fabrics I already have and not go out and buy any more. I think the quilts that I have made in the past that were already planned out beforehand though have turned out to look the best. I am not so sure of this.... cut and sew whatever I have, but time will tell.

Just A Quick Update
I managed to get four blocks done on the quilt I am making for Maddie. Just this much has taken me 2 days. The first day was spent cutting. But I remember taking my first quilting class to make an Irish Chain, about 25 years ago, and was finished with the whole top in one weekend. I didn't even go back to finish the class. Age is slowing me down, and I am not sure why. This style of quilt with all the points is a little hard to do because they have to all "match up."
