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!





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

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.

my fav is #2 and #1 is a close runner up...

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

I love number one.

I think i should add a red and white to my list of must makes now...

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

I definately prefer layout 1.
