Moms quilt and a learning process

Well I finally finished my moms quilt and it is ready to be sent to the long arm quilted. I got a lot of compliments regarding the use of greens in the quilt, everyone oohed and Ahhed over it. So I thought I could do the same monochromatic theme with a different pattern, so I set off to use a peach tone for the new pattern. Well that was a complete craft fail because the entire block wound up looking like one giant blob on peach and didn't even look anything as nice as my moms quilt. So back to the drawing board with that idea. Maybe I should try pinbasting my brother Dennis's quilt and finish that one off instead for A while. That ought to help bring my self esteem up a bit.
