One of these things doesn't belong here...

Each little brick of color,

this little mini

Finds its place in a rainbow of gratitude,

this little mini

Swimming in improv, low volume scraps.

this little mini

Up close all flash and color and smiles,

this little mini

But a little distance makes clear one piece must change.

this little mini

I wonder if our eyes see the same?  But don't tell us here which piece bugs you!  I'll quilt and share the finish soon.  Then we'll find out how many of us fixated on the same thing.

I always liked that game:  One of these things doesn't belong here...

  2. I agree with Angela. The large tan one near the top.

  3. To me, the yellow stripe in the rainbow section stands out. It's too neutral, and right next to the neutrals, so it reads as belonging to them rather than the rainbow.

  4. It's the taupe and white print--the white conflicts with the other creams and off-whites.

    Those must be the non-obedient ones :-D
    I am looking forward to your "ta-da" and then we shall discuss.
    I hope you enjoyed a little bit cooler weather.

    1. It's alright. I'm a good sport ;) And, I promise I made the planned change before reading here. Best not to be confused by all the suggestions. But they are fun reading!

  9. Seriously? It's beautiful - don't change a thing.

  10. Ok so I admit something caught my eye, but maybe because you asked, or because of personal aesthetic - but no matter. I just love it.

  11. Such a sweet little thing!!!

  13. It's lovely! AND I see one little item that truly distracted my eye from it's smooth flow around the piece...can't wait to see if we're on the same wave length or not!!!

  14. At first it was the grey across from the blue, then it was the blue with the white, finally I realized it was the white strip that was freaking me out!

  15. I don't see it! It looks lovely to me.

  16. It is beautiful, but I see tw possible problems that stop my eye. I agree with Angela that the large beige rectangle a bit strong for a neutral....but also the yellow block that is touching it is a bit dull, so it blends in. No matter, it is still amazing.

  17. There's nothing I love more than having something not belong in a piece of sewing. Otherwise I often think things are too predictable. I like it. lots.

  18. I don't notice anything. Looks perfect to me. I'll be interested to see what you changed.

  19. So nothing bugs me here! After long pondering and knowing how you feel about multiple color prints I have a guess : )

  21. I think I know what piece you mean, but my lips are sealed. I think you shouldn’t change anything, as the overall look is very interesting!

  22. Hi Rachel! This looks beautiful and exciting! I love the creative and impr. way you made this. I wonder if you continue it or if it stays this size. Can't wait to see and hear more. x Teje

  23. Meg Merwin said it for me. But still beautiful to me and I wouldn't change it.

  24. I've looked several times now, and I think it is just lovely as is! But after looking again this morning, I do have a guess. Can't wait to see the finished piece!

  25. The piece that keeps pulling me toward it is the yellow and white polka dot, but since nobody else mentioned it, I'm probably wrong. We all see things differently, right or wrong, and that's what makes the world go round. Anxiously awaiting news of Eleni's next round of treatment. God could not have sent her to a more loving and caring home Rachel. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net

  26. I love it the way it is, but will be interested in what you change.

  27. Such a fun piece! And it cracks me up how people can't follow instructions. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. It bothers me that I can't find a piece that doesn't fit!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. okay, this is why I have so much trouble picking fabrics for quilts - it all looks fine to me ... I'll be really interested to find out what the results are!

    ReplyDelete
  30. There is one bit that stick out to me but honestly if I made this block I'd probably let it live there! Will be fun to see which one it is that you want to change!

    ReplyDelete
  31. :-) How creative you are is such an inspiration! I like reading the lively banter and look forward to the outcome!

  32. Don't do it. Leave that quilt alone. Part of what makes it great is that it is not all symmetrical and perfect. I think the block you mean is that little darker tan square, but I love how it looks so bold and courageous there on its own, being different and not being afraid to show it...not that I usually personify my quilts blocks, but in this case....

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have yet to see the one that drew my eye be said yet....so it probably isn't it! But I can't wait to see which one you end up changing. Regardless, I think it's beautiful and should be left the same :) Just based on these comments, everyone sees something different anyways!

  34. I love it! Is it the black/dark gray that's bothering you? And how fun is that green rug!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Rach my guess is also the taupe block top left, maybe too dark? I like the guessing element xxx

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hmm, well... I won't say anything ;)

    I like the order the rainbow gives in the middle of the disordered improv background. It reflects how things are sometimes with kids.

  37. The one dark gray block in the border.

  38. Sorry just reread the bit where you said not to tell you, hope we haven't given you a complex!!!! My bad xxx
