I have 42 blocks bordered and have another 10 ready to cut. I decided I needed to try some layouts and decide if this is going to be a wallhanging or a couch quilt. This would be the layout for a wallhanging.
In this staggered layout there would be a strip of the same fabrics that I am using for borders between the blocks. It is a little hard to visualize that so I may need to cut some pieces and put them on the wall. This would be the layout if it is going to be a couch quilt.
It got up to 70 degrees yesterday so I went out to the back yard and dug up the rocks that border my flower bed and the path around the tree. I started this last fall and decided I needed to get the rest done before the plants start coming up. I did more on the other side of the path after I took this photo. The rocks have been sinking in the 15 years they have been there and some were totally buried.
