This picture probably reminds you a lot of last week's photo. It is very similar but I have rearranged a few diamonds and added a few more finished diamonds. I'm trying to keep the colors balanced but was seeing a lot of orange last night when months ago I thought it had too much green and purple. I mean, one can never have enough green and purple but this did...in the beginning. Do you see any colors that are missing now or any diamonds that should be moved? About half of what's there can be moved but I refuse to spend hours rearranging jut to try it.
And because I was messing around with my camera, I tried B&W to check values. The center round was to have a light (center) and then dark, the next round medium surrounded by dark and then dark surrounded by less dark. I see a couple that didn't quite make the cut but since the color version is ok, I am leaving them.
I have 9 more complete diamonds to make (one of which is already half done) and then the 12 half diamonds for the points. I have 4 diamond "kits" together. I am fairly certain that, unless I see some fabric that HAS to be in the quilt, I won't kit the remaining 4 diamonds until these 5 are done because I will need to decide what colors are missing. I also probably won't do the black sashing until I get all the complete diamonds finished so that I can rearrange as needed.
