happy flower qal week 32

Starting this week with yet another redo.  Block #4.  The background I chose before was too ... loud.  So I just picked a calmer background (and changed the leaves). Much better. :)

Ugh.  Why do I do this to myself?  I was all happy with this block until I noticed that a cluster of roses in the big blue square runs into the busiest triangle (top right).  Now all I see is a big mashy mashup in that section.  If I'd noticed that before I sewed it together, I'd have swapped the two strawberry triangles.  But I didn't notice it.  And now I'm doomed to live with this blob in a block forever.  'Cause I ain't got time to placate ALL of my nutty O.C.D. tendencies. (sigh)

(That said, the original block here has the same mashy mushy thing going on too ... maybe I'm just an overthinker who needs to just calm the heck down.)

I don't have any amazing large scale prints like this one.  But I have lots of pretty little ones! :)

UPDATE:  I ca ved and redid the block after writing the post ... all I can say now is aaaaaaaaaah :)

I love that you remade the block. =) I would have done the same thing! I appreciate people who are the same kind of crazy as me.

I do think you overthink, but if that's who you are, then you should embrace it! ;-)
I would gladly adopt all of your rejected blocks, if you are looking for a new home for them. I like them!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who does this! I'm doing two Farmer's Wife king sized quilts and occasionally I'm midway (or horrors) finished with a block and I find the colors just aren't what I thought they are. It's all about scale and placement! This is going to be the prettiest quilt. I am not doing it at this point, just following, but it's so tempting. I might.
