Then I did another block using all hand-dyes, a light gray center, logs increased in size to 2", and only two logs deep out from the center. (These are reds I had on hand; if I go with solids, I will dye reds with less orange in them.)
I'm leaning towards a block that is just two logs deep, but I'm not sure on the width of the log or on solids versus prints in the red. In the comparison below, I've folded under the last log in commercial print block, so both are just two logs out from the center.
Now I'll ask the couple what they prefer. . . They decided on all hand-dyes (like the block at the left in the last photo). How nice to have someone else make the decision!
