Sunday Stash and Stitching report, week 16, 2015

I've gotten a few more rosettes done for La Passacaglia. I should mention that this design is from a book called Millefiori Quilts, by Willyne Hammerstein. This is the rosette I'm currently working on.  It has two more stars to go onto it, and then I can call it done.
 I am seriously considering doing some re-arranging, so that I can get that little dark one to fit in better. I put it, and the almost finished one beside each other down at the bottom, and they seem to play fairly well with each other there. I'm thinking of using the blue stars to go around that dark one. The colours in this picture aren't quite true. It's a smidgen on the yellow side, but I don't seem to able to get it corrected.

Here's a closer picture of that dark block that is having such a hard time playing nicely with the others. It is actually sitting on top of another rosette that was made using that blue colour, but I can find another place for it. This combination seems to work better. There are enough grey tones in these three blocks that they work better together.
Due to my continuing fixation on this project, the stash numbers aren't changing very fast. All I can count as out are two rosettes that got finished his week.

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
