The Coco Express is Coming!

I need to add a few smallish borders, but here it is.

I don't do random well.  I really don't.
To me, there is always a pattern in my randomness.
That's one of the things I had
some difficulty with when rug hooking.
Trying to do backgrounds the way I wanted them to look.
(and, by the way, that is the reason my
big a** star rug is not yet finished)

So.  I decided to put the quilt top together this way.
Course, then I had to work with values.
Another trouble spot with me.
But, I think I did okay.
Darks, lights, mediums pretty well balanced.
Don't you think?

Gonna read tonight.
Snack = honey crisp apple.
With caramel dip.

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10

Love it Jacque. Just tried my first honey crisp apple last week. They seem to be the thing this apple season.

Nice quilt! It sure doesn't look like you have any difficulties with values and randomness!
