TIF Crazy Quilt Block

I said I was going to change the way I pieced my TIF block together this month -well I have and here it is.
Having seen it now I am not sure if I am going to like doing it this way but I won't know until I do it will I.
It is strange how everybody sees the colours differently-so I went to the Colourlovers site where Sharon submits a photo and they choose the colours from the photo (I think that's how it works anyway).
I then went to Pam's site because she choses the DMC thread colours that will match the selected colours.
So all in all this is the nearest that I could get to what has been submitted and I rather like it now--and I seem to have plenty of"stuff" to do all the embellishing so I'm rather pleased.

Now all I have to do is get stuck into it.

Hi Doreen, I really like the way the fabric pieces radiate out on your block.

You've inspired me to give this scheme a try.

Looks good to me. It's going to be fun to see how you embellish it.

Glad to see you didn't shirk a challenge. We are all capable of a lot more than we think. Well done.

Looking forward to seeing what you'll do with your block. I haven't had time yet to think about the challenge, but I'm not very excited about this colour scheme!

I like the colours and the arrangement in this one, it seems to suit the strength of the colour scheme.
Looking forward to seeing where you go from here.
