OK, I've completely lost track of how many posts I've made about the making of the Pickle Dish and Mariner's Compass Quilt. I think I numbered them, and then sneaked in a few about the intricate units. And then added a little bit of humor about how my group is all whining about making the quilt. So, don't ask me what number this one is - it's a continuation, OK?
I got bogged down when I had most of the sub-pieces done and had a hard time figuring out what color to put on the edges of some of the center pickle dish units. I cut out and placed moss green. Too dark. I tried lime green. I tried white. AAH! I don't really like any of them, but ended up with the moss green so that the background receded behind the Mariner's Compass blocks. Here are the pictures of the trials.
