What I am learning from this challenge is that symmetry is definitely a much less comfortable idea for me than asymmetry. I think my decision to use courthouse steps as a starting point has been helpful, up to a point, but really all I need to do now is just keep cutting strips and going round and round. And where, I ask myself, is the fun in that?
You would think, wouldn't you, that I would be grateful for a nice, simple, pretty solution but clearly not. I love these fabrics,the mix of florals and stripes and plaid, and the general feel of what I have so far but I am itching to start unbalancing things. I'm not even sure that would be a good idea at this point, but still I want to meddle.
