I think my version has too much going on... brights, lights, darks of all types of fabrics and the block itself isn't interesting enough to carry it off. My eye keeps trying to find a pattern of some kind! A good lesson learned and now I'm actually kind of excited about trying this pattern again as a low volume quilt. I also think it would work well with medium/light blues and greens (kind of a sea glass effect).
Once I figured this out it was kind of liberating to turn my mind off, do some speed piecing and get the top assembled. One of the reasons I love making quilts for Project Linus is to play with color, new patterns and new techniques. They don't have to be masterpieces to comfort a child!

It's a bit early for snow around here so I'll end my post with another picture of Kitchen Sink Strings. It looks like another gloomy day in the making... good thing I've got pretty fabrics to play with in my quilting room!
