What materials did you use? All cotton from my stash. The little porcupine was the start. I have picked analogous colors.

Hello. This is my first posted project and it feel a little scary to share it. I have just made it as a practice in color choice. I have chozen two variations of analogous colors and would like comments considering color options and color value. Thanks.

I really like the fabrics you have chosen for your log cabin blocks. It will be fun to see your quilt progress. Joen

Just another thought. It looks as if you are working in dark spring green colors and golden yellow colors. If you look at a color wheel, you will see that you have selected 2 colors that can be on either end of an analogous coloring. So if you wanted to work in an actual color plan, consider filling in the other colors---using yellows (olive greens) chartreuses (avocadoes), yellow-greens that lie between these two hues. If you have the Color Play book, you can look at these colors' pages to see the many variations these colors can be made into. Anyway, if you add these colors to your mixture, you may find that you project will become richer than if you use only the colors that you have currently chosen. Perhaps you can do a few blocks using the 5-color span in lights and darks and then compare them to the current ones you have made. Let me know what you think. Joen
