PLAY top finally finished

As you all may remember, I'm participating in the improv quilt along called PLAY with Elm Street Quilts.  This was a weekly series of prompts including wonky log cabin. wonky stars, curves and strips, and text.  I did get them all done and will be quilting this today and tomorrow.  Hopefully, I'll be able to meet the deadline!

I'm really glad that I participated and have learned lots.....such as hue doesn't equal value in colors, start with enough fabric to finish the project, curves can be fun and my camera really hates lime green!  The washed out yellowish in the center is really a bright lime green about two shades lighter than the other green I used.

The main thing I learned is that I am my own worst enemy!  Second, third, and fourth thoughts are common and thinking back to my pile of unfinished projects that's a running theme.  For the final layout of this project, I did let it sit for a week while I stared at it, rearranged, and thought about starting over with different colors.  Then I let it sit for another week while I thought and rearranged some  more.  It's a good thing there is a time limit or I'd still re rearranging!

Linking with Em's Scrapbag for Moving it Forward Monday........and, of course, Patty at Elm Street Quilts(link above)
