I Have a Plan

After creating my 100 hand pieced curved blocks, I played around with several different layouts using the floor and I've settled on this one.

I like the way the way the low volume fabric looks and I've already got ideas on how to quilt it!  I'm not so sure, however, on the color placement in the top right hand corner.  When I made the blocks, I was somewhat random on how many I made of various colors.  Right now, I'm really not liking those green blocks. 

So I may make a few replacement sblocks that would better match the colors.

But before I do that, I'm testing my layout and whether I've trimmed the blocks enough.

I'm starting in the bottom left corner and going to try to get a 5 x 5 set of blocks together.

What do you think?

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I like your beginning. I think you might be right about the greens in the upper right.

  2. I love it! The greens make the eye move around, so it's not so matchy-matchy, or just a rainbow. Ultimately, it's what you like.

  3. I actually think the greens in the right corner add to the beauty!

  4. I love this. I don't think there is anything I would replace, but you must do what makes it work for you. It is gorgeous!

  5. Looks great. I would probably move the red blocks, row 4, 5 on right, some where else unless you like the eye drawing placement. I'm getting close to the 100 and then I will see what I need to change.
    Thanks for the idea. I love to hand sew. Are you going to hand sewing together and then hand quilt?

  6. Hand piecing all those blocks is an incredibly accomplishment. They are beautiful!

  7. So, so pretty, Patty! Did you mark your sewing line on each piece? If so, how?

  8. A fun setting for those blocks, very pretty too.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
