Too Good To Cut Challenge Week 2

I have spent a lot of time at my machine piecing blocks and tops this week.  Most of the sewing was to finish WIPs and UFOs.  I did manage to piece 16 more blocks for my Too Good to Cut Jambalaya Quilt.  I have been arranging them on the faded carpet in my sewing room and I thought I was pleased with the mix.  This morning I taped them to the white closet doors in the hall to take a picture and they looked quite different.  The colors seem unbalanced.  I will be making more blocks, and either adding to the top to make it larger, or using any blocks that seem discordant on the back.

This shot is my original "carpet" arrangement.

This is the second arrangment I tried this morning.  The fabric has a muddied tone in the photos.  The colors are more vibrant in person.
