I've nicknamed this composition High Anxiety for now. Not because that's the way I feel about it (not yet!) but because of the exercise directions.
At the workshop I started with the pieces splattered together helter-skelter.

|cut and uncut diamonds|
I initially sewed the smallest modules together into strips.
|sewn into rows|
These diamonds have been arranged and rearranged multiple times - more than are shown here.

|I like this but not what I was after. May be version 2.|
This is one composition that demands to be bigger. The Black lines mark out a 5’ square. Rearranging the modules wasn't enough to make it work. I needed more diamonds. Because I had to dig out the colors from my stash, making more took forever.
Now it's about six feet square.
