I used the lightest value with the darkest for the pinwheel. I think this makes it seem to float on top. My block came out a little crooked. I decided that just made it a little more floaty. LOL
Ups & Downs
I loved playing with this block. The 3D effect in the old tumbling block quilts was created by using light, medium and dark values. I think a quilt made with these blocks could be very dramatic.
If I made this block again I would choose a wider range of colors. The dark pink and purple spools appear much closer in color than I expected. I am telling myself the ripples in this block will “quilt out”. LOL
