Almost There

I’ve only got 10 blocks to go and this is where I’m at.

I’m still playing and turning the blocks. But the digital method is infinitely better than any manual method I could envision. It’s so much easier to get an overall perspective of what’s going on. (Thanks again Jen.) I can see already that I prefer the “star” pattern in the blocks that have the dark tone-on-tone brown triangles. The “center square” version is not nearly as good. For some reason I keep seeing a pig nose in the center of it. Weird, I know. But once you see something like that, you can never un-see it. You know it’s true.

I once had this Thomas McKnight poster of the Boston Public Gardens. Look in the center between the trees to a fountain with two streams of water shooting up. There’s something dark behind it. Then there’s a dark curve underneath of the base of the fountain. It looks like a monkey face and I will forever see it that way. Ruined a perfectly nice poster for me. It’s stuck in a closet somewhere.

    I was just thinking yesterday of trying a quilt pattern in photoshop!

    I see the monkey face! It’s clear as can be.

    Cool technique, digital blocking. I am nowhere near this advanced!
