The Hexagon Diamonds Blues

The title is descriptive of the photo and of my mood.

Blue Hexagon Diamonds HP

The diamond on the right is pretty clearly light blue, though some hexagons are more greenish or greyish.  That just adds interest.  The one on the left is just barely darker than the “medium blue” one in the middle.

I’m not going to sew any of these up.  They’ll just go back into the “blue” container as loose, basted hexagons.

I do think that I learned I only need two shades of blue for I’m Not a Machine, though, and maybe greenish-blue, if I have enough fabrics in that shade, which I doubt.

All told, I learned a lot about color and value this month, even if I didn’t get much done besides basting.  I’m looking forward to next month’s color.  I hope it’s an easier one, like orange.

      Pink isn’t usually in my wheelhouse but I’m super-excited for it. Maybe I won’t obsess as much over it since I don’t like it as much.

    Looks like you have the difficult part done with the hexies. They look great. Hope you have an easier time with pink – it is more difficult for me as my values of pink are not as varied as I would like for one of my projects.
