It might be the final layout........

I thought this was going to be my final layout all day as I kept peeking at it.  Then last night I saw the photo on the computer monitor and I might have to move one block.  There are 2 very dark X's in the bottom left corner.  I know that once I move one block I'll end up having to move others so it might just stay the way it is.  I moved a lot of blocks yesterday morning.  The X's are alternated light and dark so I can't just move one block to the side, it has to go diagonally to stay in the same position.  The bottom right corner has 3 darks together because the block I pulled out was a light and I didn't want to make another block.  I have 2 friends coming over today to sew so I'll see what they think.
 
It finally got warm enough to go out for a walk yesterday.  It was 45 degrees and the sun was shining and no wind so it felt warmer than it was.  I walked down to the Hallmark store to get a birthday card and stopped at the post office to mail the card on my way home.

You know I think it's pretty well balanced overall. I can pick them out as you've noted them but otherwise I wouldn't have. They don't jump out. I think it looks good!

it's nice to get out and take a walk isn't it! I hate walking when it is cold outside as my muscles tense too much and then I ache.
I see what you mean about the 2 blocks in the corner, and yes when you move one you end up moving more I always do that too. Love these blocks.

Oh the joys of living in a small town where you can walk everywhere.

What colorful fun this one! How nice to take a walk. I enjoy my little *walks* around my yard while its still cool enough. Here comes summer and you know what that means for us MS'ers ---> indoors with a/c or fade to black. Hee!

Like... oh yeah, this isn't Facebook is it? But this looks good, I don't see the darkness you mention. And you are so right, move one block and suddenly a new problme appears!

Love it.

If you wouldn't have pointed it out I would have never noticed the blocks you were talking about. I love the way it is turning out. Lucky you to be able to walk in the sun. I spent my morning at the hospital having more tests. I would have rather been walking in the sun.

I dont really see the dark in the corner as sticking out, rather the blue in the middle. But as always, it is beautiful!!

Try switching the botton left with the bottom right...I think that might take car of the dark/light problem you are seeing. I love this quilt!!!!

Looks good to me. I especially like the blocks where the stripes form the X. Would love to see a whole quilt using stripes this way.
