And the finish!

This my last finish for the Mod Mosaic Bee I joined in last year.  Safiya is going to have a little girl so these blocks will go to making a first quilt for her daughter.  She asked for aqua, grey, yellow, coral and pale pinks.  I didn't realize until typing up my post that I didn't use any yellow.  I suspect because I don't have many pastel or lighter hues of fabrics.  My purchases are usually bright bright bright.  I did have some (thank goodness for the Stash Stack I joined for a few months) lighter colors for her color palette.

As I created Mod Mosaic blocks last year (two every month) I have come to hate them.  Not because I don't like them, but whew - they are a lot of work for me. Directions, patterns, rules and order of operations are a delight to me but improvisational is not. These blocks went together much faster when I laid them all out first but no rules kind of stress me out.  What about you? Which style do you prefer?
