Random Blocks in Brown and Teal

Is anyone else having trouble getting to the sewing machine lately? Please! tell me it's not just me... ! Maybe it's the heat, maybe I'm just not feeling inspired, maybe I found a good book to read... who knows, but I'm not moving very fast on the Random Blocks quilt that my friend tirane has enticed me into making with her.

But! I have one block finished! DSC02526
I really really wish the colors looked better.
I don't have all the seperate blocks sewed to each other because I thought I might switch things around when I have more made -- make the 'random' part more planned,, (( grin ))
And, instead of making it 30 inch blocks in a 3x3 layout, I'm doing 25 inch blocks in a 4x4 layout so I can get the size I need to fit the queen bed ( I want drape on the sides and end ).

Slowly,,, ever so slowly,,, but I'll get it done!
( i don't like the top block in the left corner and I'm hoping that more blocks will offset the dark brown that just seems to jump out at me)

pretty! you just need more of your teal in it, that's why you don't like the colors yet. keep after it!

I think we all have slow times but this is going to be a very pretty quilt!

Cool fabrics!

I think you might want to repeat the light fabric more, otherwise that seems to stand out to me. On the whole I think it looks like a great start!

I am in a total sewing slump just now, too.
