One of the things I had to figure out had to do with the size, shape, and colors of the sky pieces. When I really paid attention to the sprouts blocks, I decided to mimic their pieces in the sky. (I'm apologizing ahead of time for my dark photos! This is all on the design wall in my basement sewing room, which works great for my purposes, but low volume fabrics don't photograph well there.)
The border and sashing pieces are 2.5 inches like the sprouts pieces, but the center strip (the stem) is 1.5 inches.
So I've started making the top in blocks like this - adding in more blues as I get to the top.
That section of sky matches up perfectly with the first column of sprouts!
I will need two more rows above this section to get the size I want.
I've continued to cut various pieces for this section, but still need more. Here's how the design is looking at this point. I've just stuck all the blues at the top for now - some of them may still be too dark for this project.
Working on these blocks from left to right at this point.
Slowly... I'm getting there!
