16 25" QAYG blocks pieced and quilted. Ruby Star Rising, Kona charcoal and Kona coral with skinny frames in a selection of other Kona solids. Thoughts on layout anyone?

  5. Any layout would look great! How are you going to sew together the blocks and the back?

  6. I love this quilt! I'd say put your favorite 4 blocks in the middle, so you can look at them the most. :)

  8. Looks great just the way it is! I usually put favourite/best blocks in the middle/top where the eye goes first, any I'm not completely happy with around the edges.

  9. Hi, I think it looks good the way you have it. I like the prints that you used. What are you planning on using for the binding? Sometimes, I walk away from it for an hour then come back, you may see it all together different. But it does look good.

  11. How big is this thing? it looks like it fills up your whole house!! The second row has little squares and the bottom row has bigger squares, can they be mixed up a little?? just being technical really, it's AMAZING!

  13. Totally glorious! and huge! Layout looks good, if it was me, I'd swap the top left block with one of the others that has more going on in it's top left hand corner (if you see what I mean!) just so the frame of a picture frames the edge of the quilt... probably makes no sense at all!

  14. I think this is stunning! And if you are like me, you move things around and end up back where you started !!
    my 2 cents worth....I always like to "anchor" my corners. So you have a larger square in the corner of the block on the bottom 2 corners, so I would move a larger square in the block for the top 2 corners as well. (not sure if I have explained that to make sense???)

  15. Great job Lynne. I have to say it looks pretty good. Like another commenter, I am curious as to the size...this thing look huge on the screen.

  16. I would shift one or two from the second row down and swap with one or two in the bottom right.

    I was going to tell you to totally rearrange it with chess move instructions...but I don't know any!!

    Looking amazing though x

  20. Jeez Nigel, this is spectacular. I don't think there is much you could do wrong with this treasure, no matter how you laid it out! How fab that it is all quilted already - home stretch coming right up!

  21. Wow, Lynne! You are almost done with the great gallery of blocks. My suggestion is that you take pictures of the layout possibilities as you go so you can document and then just keep playing with the puzzle pieces. I do think I'd move some of the bigger "paintings" toward the middle and balance them with the littler guys. Do you have these blocks photographed dead on like you do your FWQAL? If so, let me know and I'll play with the layout myself--just for fun.
