I've had lots of comments on whether the 9 patch split is too light,etc....I have to agree with Sharon, if I do it more color controlled, it will give eyes place to rest. For instance, if I do red/neutral/blue...it would make a GREAT QOV (quilts of valor) pattern! I played with it in EQ 5 a bit, and changed part of the lights to a gold...The light areas would be all different neutrals..the blues all different blues...the constant factor would be the red/gold triangles.
The little sample I started yesterday is getting a braided border. It won't turn the corners right because of the cornerstones (can you just say NO to mitered corners!) and the cornerstones are just going to run off the edge wherever they end. I'm fine with this! It's been a great way to do some mindless piecing, and use up a bunch of short 2" strips in the process.
