Here comes the Sun(flowers) 3

So, I didn't like the green-ness of the previous Sunflower.
New attempt. Inner triangles of the larger of the two Sunflowers are no longer green, but rather a light yellow. Same general colour-family as the diamonds.

I like that.
I have also begun to audition fabrics for the background, and I like the general idea of 'bright blue', hovering somewhere between cerulean (thank you, 'The Devil Wears Prada' for that term) and cobalt. Time enough to make a decision, though :-)

What I do not like, is the way the inner diamonds look on this one.
Lesson learned here : When making a Double Sunflower, the fabric used for the smaller (inner) diamonds should read as a solid (or almost solid), and not have a busload of interesting bits of pattern.

On to the next one !
I hope you can tell that I'm having fun :-)

I really like that block just as it is -- the inner diamonds almost have a dappled sunlight effect. It's fabulous!

I agree with Cathi, I like this as is! But, isn't that the fun of designing and piecing...

What is there not to like about this block Tilde? I think it looks great as it is. Very pretty block. I also like the first one with pink and green one.
