Probably because the first color way is kind of a "wing it" sort of thing. I knew what I wanted to do in my head, but to actually pull the fabric and make the correct tones of color work is another. Thankfully I have a pretty decent stash of fabric to choose from and was able to pull everything together, although, not in a very timely manner.
The first block in the pic below is the focus (and center) block of the first color way being done. I love how it turned out and a big thank you to Jim for helping me choose the correct values in color to make this an amazing block!
