My previous blocks were very coral/pink centric and I wanted to break away from that. I wanted to introduce blue and brown.
It looked great, but unfortunately the scraps I had were not wide enough so I had to go back to the drawing board. I ended up choosing the coral. Go figure! I did think the brown balanced it out a bit.
I think the block turned out fabulously. I absolutely love it. I think the floral fabrics cuts the harshness of the geometric lines. This has turned out to be another serendipitous block. I wasn't so sure about block 3 either, but that turned out great. I am growing as a quilter. I still have my obsessive tendencies, but I am branching out, learning how to mix and match fabrics and sometimes letting things just work out on their own.
