Design options

  My night time / when I am in the mood / on-going project  is beginning to take some shape. Actually, it has been patiently waiting for me to get back to it.
   My basket of units is full and for the last couple of evenings I have been making blocks.   This is the  block I am working with.....4 patch units, and HSTs.  Both units start with 5" squares.

 Since my design wall is being occupied right now....I had to use the floor.
    Straight rows and furrows layout.  With enough blocks I could do a full barn-raising layout to create the diamond effect.

Or.....a very traditional  square block to block layout.  Somehow, this is just a bit boring to me.

This was my original idea for the layout.  And I do think I like this best.  Seems I am always second guessing myself.
  Insight:  Trust your gut instinct.

So I can continue to make blocks and begin putting some of them together too.  I think this will be one of those quilts with no borders.....just lots of blocks.

Happy stitching.  


  1. It's amazing how those sub-units quickly are done and then wait. They make for play time fun.

  2. I love blocks that you can play with in different layouts. And, of course, super scrappy ones are best!

  3. It is amazing how you can just turn a blog and it takes on a new look...

  4. Great blocks Debbie and isn't it fun to see the different looks....you might have to make a couple! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I really like these blocks, and each layout has its own charm--even the one you find boring. : )

  6. When I look at those beautiful layouts all I can say is "darn it, now I have to get some more neutrals". :)

  7. Whichever layout you choose, it will be beautiful. I love the colors.

  8. Wow! That looks fabulous! I like both the diagonal and the layout you have chosen but I love the way the blocks are built!

  9. Hi Debbie!! I jumped over from Marlene's blog. I LOVE the idea of lights and darks put together like that.
