And then there are elephants and rails. While I like the colours which have come together well, wouldn't you know it, the fat quarter I bought is 5 squares short for the size I wanted to make. I did buy a second fat quarter with the same colours, but not elephants, more like bunting. It's amazing how things just stand out so much more when you take a photo as opposed to the naked eye. I had thought of scattering the bunting squares in 5 spots, but having seen the photo I don't think so. It means I just have to go back to the fabric shop and get another fat quarter, which will leave/create more scraps, and so the circle goes on and on! The dark grey narrow border I was thinking of using also looks far darker by photo, but a lighter grey just seems to wash things out, so I think I'll end up going with that anyway, unless a better idea grabs me before I go to cut and sew it.
The aqua forming a square around the elephants looks far better than the lime green too, so maybe some more adjustments coming up. How did I cope before digital photos? And how handy are mobile phones for that purpose?
