Another view - work in progress

I'm posting early as I don't know whether or not I will have computer access later today.
When I showed all 5 versions of the quilt I got some good suggestions from readers.
One mentioned viewing their work in black and white. I had forgotten about doing this and was able to view all of these in grayscale.

Here they are for you to look at.

Viewing them in grayscale helps to to see the value of the colors I used.

When creating art value does all the work and color gets all the credit.

Do you feel differently about them now that you are seeing them in black and white?

If you are on Facebook and are one of my friends you can see all 10 versions - 5 in color and 5 in grayscale - at the same time.

Since I have found gray scale puzzle the hardest to do I am giving us an easy cut!

Wow, putting the piece in greyscale really helps to see how the value changes are working! How did you do that? I've got Photoshop, but I'm not very good at using it. Is that what you used? Did you take a picture and then open it up there and remove the color? I think that might work. I'm going to do that next time I get my piece up on the design wall. Thanks for the hint of designing!

When trying to decide on something I always harken back to what my husband does. Process of elimination. It makes things easier for me.

view one seems the most balanced and pleasing to my eye. In the other views the darkest color seems too bold and overpowering.

I actually like the bottom arrangement because of the strong dark line. It leads you from the edge into the peice. Good luck either way.
