It's looking like it's supposed to!
Finally, it's coming together. Several bloggers have ASKED me to keep posting my continuous struggle. This has been WORK!
The top photo colors are not accurate, but you can finally see what's happening with the lights, darks, and the shaft of light radiating from the upper left.
The bottom photo colors are close to true. And I LOVE this corner. Three more to go!
The new part is a 2.75 inch (half of the block size) inner border and the colors blend from light to dark. The pieces are joined diagonally, so they hit the seam perfectly - tedious but rewarding. At first the border pieces were approximately 1/3 of each color on each side -- no good at all. Had to redo them to get a pleasing visual ratio.
There may be one more border after this, made up of half square triangles, again, blending in value from light to dark.
I think I'm going to like it! LOL
