Creekbed Flimsy

My September OMG is to finish this flimsy, which is complete.  Well, maybe. 

I love the setting triangles, but I'm not sure of the overall look.  Too much contrast?  Should have made the triangles a bit darker?  It's funny, because I did exactly what I intended... which so rarely happens.  

It's draped over a chair for now.  Maybe I'll hang it on the wall and gander at it a while and see if anything else comes to mind.  I cringe at the idea of pulling this apart, but I may end up doing that if this doesn't start growing on me.

I think it’s beautiful as it is. If there is something you’re questioning, maybe work your ideas into a new project—a version two. Who knows? it could become a series.

Gosh, it's gorgeous as is. I agree if you're wanting to change it, maybe make another one. The bright colors make the center pop.

I love those curvy string blocks of yours, Sally! So interesting to see the different designs you can get with them. This one is beautiful!

Oh, I woudn't unpick a single stitch. I am loving your curvy string blocks set in those triangles just the way they are....but then, it always comes down to whether or not YOU are happy with it.

It's lovely. I love the movement in these gentle curves. I need to break out of my straight line rut! If the lighter triangles still bother you, consider adding a border in some of those medium tones to corral them. That might make them a little less prominent. Not sure it would work, but it would be easy to audition before you did too much work, certainly easier than taking them apart :)

This is fabulous! Are the blocks improvisational curved piecing, fused strips, or another method? The effect is beautiful, just like stratification that you see in rock formations.
