I had 64 blocks to use for this quilt...a lap quilt with 8 rows of 8. I paired up two blocks that I deliberately chose...blocks I liked together. Next, I put together two pairs of blocks...again choosing pairs I liked together. I then had 16 strips of 4 blocks. I laid them out on my bed...somewhat randomly at first. I say somewhat, because this fabric collection, 'Fig and Plum', has 3 fabrics with dots...I needed to pay attention to where those blocks were.
Here's my first layout:
(Click on the image to see the individual blocks better.) I must say that I am almost happy with this layout. There is one place where two blocks of the same color and the same print are diagonal from each other. However, since they are smack dab in the center of the quilt, I just may leave them where they are. There are two other places that I may address...we shall see. Because you know how it goes once you start moving pieces around...move one and then you need to move another...and another...and on and on.
It will be at least a few days before I get back to this. In the meantime, I have some knitting and sewing to do.
Have a great day!
