So I started this quilt early in my high school career and 14 years later, despite being ALMOST finished,  it is still sitting in a drawer.  I think it is because I'm not so sure about the layout I chose, but I want to get it DONE and out of the drawer. 

So weigh in and let me know which layout you like best!

#1:


#2:


#3:


#4:


Elijor had an amazing idea and I couldn't help but try it out.  So...
#5


In case it will help your decision making process, for layouts 1, 3, and 4, I will most likely do a 3-4 inch red border (the small half-square triangles are about 2.5 inches).  For layout 2, I would do a narrow (1-2 inch) white border on the inside then a 3-4 inch red border.

What a stunning block!  I like layout 2 or 3 best.  You are going to love this quilt when you finish it!

I like #1!  They are all quite striking and lovely, though.

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

Number 2 is my favorite. Number 1 would be if you could put the big white bullseye that is in the center off center but I think you would need 1 more block. Probably not very helpful of me adding more to the mix when you already can't decide - sorry Undecided

Yes I do Personal swaps though you might have to ask me really nicely as I don't have huge swathes of time on my hands Smiley However I love crafting for other people.
