Poppy Questions – answered
I received some questions about the poppy block, so I thought I’d answer them “in public” —
Q: I thought the color placement was to look somewhat like the block pictured on the instructions page with the reds, oranges and yellows EACH making diagonal “trails” on the block, copying the diagonal “trail” of the green squares?
A: No, only the green squares make trails — the red/orange/yellow squares are more or less randomly placed. I think when the blocks are placed together it will look like a field of flowers.
Q: I thought the greens were supposed to be rich and on the blued side, such as in Emerald, Kelly, etc. so as to show up well against the reds, oranges, golds and yellow of the “flowers” squares and not dusky, grayed, olivey or yellowy greens.
A: My plan was that the greens would be on the cool side (blue or gray) rather than yellowish. Having said that, it’s hard to photograph some colors accurately, so I’m just hoping everyone tries to follow the color instructions with their blocks!
Hope this helps —
