Do you see a problem?

I’m working on the next column of tumbling stars, trying to be careful that my diamonds get stitched in the correct positions.  This half-hex edge filler should have been easy 🙂  At least I only have to redo 2.5 inches of hand stitching instead of a whole surround.  While we’re this close, I might as well admit the color scheme for this quilt was inspired by a couple of my ugliest fabrics, one of which is prominent in this photo.  I’m sure you can guess which one!

    I hope you are not referring to the orange and green fabric as “ugly”. Surely you mean a different fabric. I have that in 2 colourways and I even went back and bought more of the green-on-green.
