More layouts

I only have 36 blocks to play with for these layouts. I sewed some more blocks later last night. This first one has diagonals all coming from the center. I didn't have enough dark blocks to finsh the outside edge. This next one looks like flying geese.
Here are groups of 4 light blocks and 4 dark blocks alternated.
The next one has squares of half purple, half yellow, some with horizontal stripes and some squares with vertical stripes. OR you might see pinwheels instead.
The one below is the same as the one above only the middle 2 rows are offset by one square. Now you have horizontal striped squares with rows of vertical striped zig zag above and below.

And that's not all, more tomorrow.
If you live close by, there are still openings in the Sat. class in Oct.

It's hard to pick a favorite, but I love the colors. However, my first thought was: Your arms must be aching from putting these blocks up on the design wall all these times!!

Jackie said...

It always amazes me what simply changing the layout can do for a quilt. They are all beautiful!

Joyce said...

I like the one that looks like attic windows from yesterday.

Ruth Anne Olson said...

It's so much fun to keep rearranging blocks to see what you can come up with. What a lot of options you have here.

Sherrill said...

I am amazed at all the different beautiful variations with those blocks.

Judi said...

I like all the sets but that first one is my favorite.

Millie said...

I am amazed at all the layouts you can come up. Wanda, do you use 4 random strips in 2 color groups or do you follow a pattern? This looks like a lot of fun to make...I wish I could take a class from you.

They are all beautiful arrangements, but I seem to be partial to the one in the third pic down, and also the one in the last pic. Can't wait to see more tomorrow!

I enjoyed seeing the different layouts. Such variety. Can't pick my favorite, so I guess I'd recommend you make one of each....thus you need MANY more blocks!

If anyone ever wonders why quilters say "life is not going to be long enough..." I am going to send them to your blog!

I like the 4-lights and 4-darks the best, but they are all wonderful!

Kristin L said...

I like that very first layout. :-)

Cheryl Arkison said...

I know it dminishes the colourwash effect, but I like the flying geese one. I think it stands out more.

Catherine said...

They're all lovely, but if I had to choose, I'd choose the third one down in this post. Seems I like the Attic Windows effect. I still see blueberry pie when I look at these fabric combinations!

Bunny said...

Love all the layouts, sometimes it takes more time deciding on how to stitch it up than to make the blocks. Colours are wonderful.

Barbara Strobel Lardon said...

I just read an article about amber and purple being so great together. This just proves it.

I can not pick which way I like best.

Becky said...

I LOVE! the first one. It is absolutely beautiful. COlorings and everything!

Quilter Kathy said...

Kayjay said...
