What a fun block this week from Corey Yoder! I love the possibilities in this with the diamond shapes and squares. I didn't even realize it was Wednesday till I started to see blocks being posted so I didn't get a color study done this week. I'll be back to playing with colors on the computer for next week's block though.
On my all-Thatched version I wanted the lighter end of the spectrum for my layout. My quilt will be in rainbow bands of color and going from dark on the left to lighter on the right. One of the ways I get those lighter shades is by using Thatched on the back side. I love the soft look it has when I use it that way!
My print version uses Thatched with Sweet Pea & Lily for lacy branches and a graphic floral center. For both blocks I made my diamond stitch and flip blocks with half dark purple corners and half cream corners. I wanted to emphasize the star in the middle but I think it made more of a petal shape on this print version and I like it. The all -Thatched with the dark purple emphasizes a bigger diamond square in the center.
