A post from Kelli–
So a while back, we did a quilt block birthday for mom and today, I’m tackling the pile and working on getting the top together.
I went home yesterday to watch the Childcare kids for a bit as mom had a follow-up doctor’s appointment for her foot and confiscated them before I left. Mom had gone through and organized them by size for the most part, but then I kind of messed them up cause I wanted to check them all out. They are so neat!
I started laying some of them out, but I’m not quite sold yet. I’m debating between a couple layouts or ideas. It’s a little challenging because they are all different sizes, styles, and colors. I think I’m going to get some laid out and then let it sit to see how I like it for a bit to see if I want to change it all. I was also debating about adding some solid or small print squares in so that there’s somewhere for the eye to rest. But I haven’t quite made a decision yet.
Has anyone else made a quilt like this with different sized blocks? What are your thoughts? Does it look too busy when they are all laid out next to each other? Let me know what you think!
