Keeping track

Given that my floor space is still otherwise occupied I am taking more photos than usual as I play, to try and keep track of things that I have to pick up and put away, so here are two things I've thought about today.  I am wondering about ways of combining the vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines from the flag with the quarter circle block.

I've tried this:


and this:

Maybe these look a bit too heavy and the proportions of the diagonal strip aren't right, but I'm not sewing anything new until I'm sure I want it, otherwise at some point I'm pretty much bound to run out of fabric.

Have you tried it with the strips placed horizontally at the top of the block and vertically down the left hand side. I guess this would make it into more of a traditional look than you are looking for. What if the diagonals were thinner?

I love these triangle sections in the circles. I'm feeling like there's quite a bit of blue, but I know by now that I have to be patient and let you fiddle through. :-) Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Adding the little blue triangles makes a tremendous difference. You are going in the right direction. Going on the diagonal works for me.

I have very limited floor space, so I depend on photos quite a lot. I like the second one a bit better. To me, it focuses more on the circle and the triangles. They are both beautiful though.
