I wanted to add some pale yellow into the mix. I pulled out some of the existing blocks to make sure they would all play nicely together. I like the yellow with white stripe, fussy cut into the background between the sun's rays ... now I just need to make five more.
The sun will be set into a white background, but I haven't decided yet what color/fabric I'll use for the small circle in the center. Neither of the centers in the photos feels quite right ... I am thinking a pale gray or a minimalist sun with a white (background fabric) center is the answer.
My plan for a slow-stitch Sunday evening is to hand-appliqué the centers in place on as many sun blocks as I can piece this afternoon.
