Right here in River City! With a capital "T"! That rhymes with "P". And that stand for Paprika......well I think The Music Man thought "P" stood for Pool......but you get my drift!!
Paprika.....remember the lovely 19th Century Reds fabric and Fons and Porter pattern I picked up at "The Road to California" show?
Here's the picture I took at the show. I wasn't in any hurry to get to it, but knew I wanted to make it this year. I don't have any particular deadlines on any of my projects, but it must be my Accounting background that makes tend to go FIFO (first in first out) when it comes to my projects. I do my older ones before my newer ones. But Lesly/Pickle Dish also fell in love with this quilt and asked me if I was interested in doing a sewalong. I had so much fun with Toulouse I said sure, and switched from FIFO to LIFO (last in first out).
Here's the jumbled mess currently on my design wall.....for some reason it just doesn't look good to me
So I unscrambled the light blocks, each individual block has the same fabric, but the blocks are made of different fabric. A controlled scrappy. I like it. I left the dark blocks scrambled, I don't like that.
So I unscrambled the dark blocks, better but not great......
This is block 'B".....I love it..nothing to change here.

This is better, but I'm still not over the top with excitement....
So what's up? What am I missing? I feel like the problem is the center of block "A".. but maybe not. Maybe the problem is me..... and the quilt is fine. But I'm just not loving it.
I'm going to get my hair done this morning and when I get home I'm so hoping someone has left the perfect solution for my quilt. And I hope it's not put it in a box and forget it!!
