Joanne's Sage Bud
I've been collecting photos of your Sagebud block (#9 in Westering Women)
JJan added more seams to avoid Y-seams.
getting the same block if not the same look.
I found a variety of looks.
When I Photoshopped them altogether it wasn't the most coordinated quilt. So I tried some design tricks to get a calmer look.
One way to pull things together is to alternate a simple block
with the same proportions. Here I did a digital sketch
of a nine patch constructed like the Sagebud....
Creating a coordinated quilt out
of some of your coordinated blocks.
Another design trick is to do a counterchange shading
with one block light on dark and the alternated block dark on light.
To do that I Photoshopped Jeanne's block
by "inverting" it and fooling with the color.
The dark border also pulls things together.
I added a digital border of "Patterson Park" from
my Baltimore Blues line (it's not all blue).
Not really to scale but you get the idea.
