Played with the layout yesterday, adding two open squares to connect the closed squares. Left it up on the design wall and came back this morning and added another open square and several 2 inch brown square. It looks like a dance….a square dance.
Checked the values by looking at it in black and white. I think I’m ready to commit. But I will give it a day or so on the design wall. In the meantime back to the neutral and black & white blocks. I’m going to take Rayna’s advice and chop them up and combine them. Would love to use them in the companion piece.
