Breaking my own rule

Some progress I think.  I spend ages fiddling around, as stated in the previous post and couldn't get things how I wanted.  My inclination was to have the brown squares spread around, and the larger blue diagonals in the bottom right corner and that wasn't feasible, since there was a brown square sewn onto the blue.   This is a good example though, of why you should question the rules you set yourself.  I always tend to look at the spread of things (shapes/colours) but what worked best for me in this case was to plonk one big brown bit right next to another one.  This is where it got me.
This is about 60" long but not quite 40" wide.  I have enough blocks already made to add one more column, which I will get on and do  Then I am wondering about some borders. And maybe one more round of squares.  Or something else entirely.

Nicely balanced. The two orange triangles in the middle look like a butterfly.

You have gotten a lot done on this piece! The border would be interesting with another row of blocks. Just from the photo I like the darker fabric on the left.

It has grown quickly, it seems to me. I do really like the navy print as a border option, but I do also have this thing for blue. :)

Good progress and I agree with Shasta there's good balance.
Nice photo of your top hanging on the clothes line in the sun.

I like that strip as a strip with another row of blocks to the outside.

It is a delight to watch your process. I wouldn't even have noticed the two browns together if you hadn't said something. That must mean it's all good!
