The next group of blocks combine the lightest lights (Group #6) with the next slightly darker lights (Group #5.) There are eight blocks with this combination, followed by twelve blocks using Groups #5 & #4.
It was at this point that I started having serious doubts about how this was all coming together. To tell the truth, I seriously hated it! My multicolored fabrics are a widely varied collection. There are bright, primary-color prints, softer jewel tones, and muddier earthy tones. In my opinion, getting them all to play together nicely wasn't working out so well.

I continued on, hoping that adding some darker colors would help pull it all together. I like it a little better with the new batch of blocks added, but not enough to keep going with this. I'm contemplating throwing in the towel on this project. I'm not very happy with the results, and I'm not willing to put in any more time on it right now.
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects that everyone is sharing!
