The Wrong Road

About 10 days ago, I posted this on the blog,
and pointed out the strong diagonal from the light background block on the left, to the white tree on the right. I said it was going to go.

I removed the white tree on the right. I felt it was enough. Before there was a continuous light streak. I felt removing the light tree broke it up. Starsthatblaze disagreed. It didn't bother me THAT much.

Except the more I thought about it, the more it annoyed me. So I removed that light yellow green and replaced it.

The new tree still had to be light, but I think it's better. I could have removed both trees with that light green batik-y background, but I liked the lightness they brought to the overall design.

This is all but one row. I sewed all these panels together into one big chunk, THEN removed the bright yellow tree and replaced it with the less bright fabric.

Because, you know, Starsthatblaze reminded me of a quote I have tacked up on my inspiration wall.

Fabulous quote! Excellent post to illustrate the facts.

I sometimes think I understand your references to problems you see, but this is an illustration that I am always off in left field. The quilt is amazing and how you get there doesn't have to include may understanding, just keep doing what you do.

Thank you for showing us your process. I certainly did not mean to criticize your design or cause you any angst. I was just trying to understand more about your use of color, which is so wonderful! By the way, my name is Starr.
