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?
