BOM February Balkan Puzzle Replacement

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I didn't like the gold and teal in the original block that I made, so I remade it today and I like this one. For some reason it makes me think of a fire opal, it's rather glowing from across the room. I like the original, just not in this quilt with the color direction I ended up taking. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy yourself!

Q&A with Applekrisp

NanaJeanFL asked:
Really like them both but I can see why you did another to "fit" in. Perhaps that's what I need to do to pull together the various tangents the blocks in my 1st colorway have been going. Nice choice and contrast with the new fabric combo!
Applekrisp answered:
Thanks Wasa! I was kind of waiting until the end to see what I "needed"...I'm happy with the new block.
Stitching Times asked:
Good call. I like both as well though so hope you find something to do with the first one.
Applekrisp answered:
Yes, it will go into my draw of UFO's to come out another day as something else fabulous! LOL
Darns asked:
Yes, this one does work much better with your other blocks - soon, soon, now, I'll be able to see this whole beautiful bunch of fabrics in a quilt top - going to be so great
Applekrisp answered:
I am really getting anxious about what to use for sashing...
mo.sews asked:
I volunteer to adopt the original!!!! this is one of my most favorite blocks... and I am going to check out the rest of your blocks to see why you replaced it!!! :D
Applekrisp answered:
I think I should mail the original to you and you should add a row and mail it to someone else and they should add a row, etc. till we feel it's"done" and then give it to our instructor...LOL
qulady asked:
like this versoin a lot, i think its that secondary spin off the middle, using the stripey fabric, looks like a fan- very nice, thanks for sharing it!!
Applekrisp answered:
It's funny how fabric placement can totally change the way a block reads.
