This is my center for the Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin. I pondered a ton about how I wanted this to look and although I considered a bunch of different block designs, I knew from the beginning that I wanted it rainbow colors.
I wanted this block to say something about me as a person and I think I achieved that. You see, for the most part I am a happy gal and I do my best to enjoy life. Yes there are times when I get like this
And since I love things in the colors of the rainbow (a very prevalent theme in quilt blog land thankfully) this mini had to be done in that color scheme. No other options existed for me.
On the other hand, I am not a straight and rigid person. I admit there are times when that is necessary, I am an accountant after all, but if I can be just a bit off kilter I will. I like to keep things unpredictable, outside the box. So that is why the bars of this of this are a little askew, just like me.
When I finished this center last week, I wasn't exactly sure if I was 100% happy with it so I put it on my design wall so I could gauge the way I feel about it every day. Obviously since I am posting about it here and it is now on its way to the 1st person in my group, I decided that I love it. I found that I like the way it looks like it is on the straight and narrow if you just glance at it quickly but if you stop and really look at it, you see the wonkiness in it. I think that sums me up pretty well.
Who knows if my group mates will add uneven borders to try and bring this visually back in line but that is the fun part of this Round Robin. It doesn't matter to me and since each person gets to do what they want with it, what happens will remain a mystery to me until I get it back in October.
I'm not telling which one of the group ladies gets the
torture honor of being the first to add to this, she'll know soon enough when it arrives at her door but I'm willing to bet that all the members of my group are contemplating the options when it becomes their turn to add their spin on my Wonky Rainbow.
