QAWM:Nearing the finish line

When I got to this point I realized that one more round of red strips would definitely balance out the turquoise, so I added that and built a dozen more blocks, totaling 30. I dinked around with settings and soon began to feel relief that the turquoise was finally working.
And as I placed the blocks on the design wall, I ran out of room and began thinking about getting a full size design wall again. For all this time as a fuser, I really didn't use one much except for final photography, but when designing with pieced blocks it really helps to put them up and step back. I am preaching to the choir.

 This layout had possibilities and I may return to it. But in the meantime I made two more layouts just to make sure. The one on the right is just showing 24 blocks but I have 32 so it would be larger, and the one below is missing four blocks which I would still have to make to finish this layout. It is the most unusual one of the bunch, methinks and so I will make the remaining four and finish this off at around 50x70". Then it will fit nicely on the sofa back in the living room. Perfect colors for our orange and turquoise room.

  1. I really like how your blocks are turning out... can't wait to see it finished...

  2. I like the third layout. If you put it on point you would have diagonal rows of hearts. But that is a lot of work on point and would make it bigger which you may not want.

  3. And as I turn my head sideways, no that would be vertical rows of hearts. Or is the tail end of my headache making me goofy?

  5. I hate to be a conformist but for once I am going with the crowd. While I really like the first layout, the last one just pulls me in.
