balance and backing

Yellow is often a problematic color in a design. It tends to dominate. Using yellow well often requires scattering it evenly across the design, letting it be the solo focal point, or dulling it down to less intensity.

I used yellow symmetrically to correct the design I showed last week, and I like the result. The configuration is predictable, but satisfying.

Here’s the back. I made it fast and simple, using big blocks with three 5” by 15” rectangles of spotty and dotty fabrics. 
I have a fast- approaching deadline!

The quilt is is thread-basted and ready to free-motion quilt in a big overall loopy design. Again, not wildly creative, but hopefully appropriate and speedy. I’ll give a hurrah when done.
