better blues

Further adventures in blue mosaics... I redid a couple of seams on yesterday's block and quilted it this morning. And then I made a second one with 1" white strips instead of 3/4" and it came out much better.

I went back to a book in my collection -- Jackie Robinson's "Quilts in the Tradition of Frank Lloyd Wright", which uses a lot of narrow black strips. She says to always sew with the black strip on top, to go slowly, and to go back and fix it if you wobble! Very good advice...

The mosaic block is really striking, though I can see what you mean about it being challenging with so many pieces.
