Red Progress

I have all the triangles cut. More than I need actually, which is a good thing, because I like to have a big selection from which to choose when I put my quilts together. Cutting these was a real pain in the butt. They were fussy to do and took a long time.  Now comes the fun part, mixing fabrics and components together to make the blocks.

Here are the blocks I have assembled so far arranged in the design as written. I'm not sure I'll use this arrangement, but being able to play with the blocks at this stage tells me which fabrics may not work as well as I had anticipated.

This layout shows all the blocks lined up the same way in each row. It's an interesting arrangement.

This arrangement is between the two above. This is a "half drop," which means each block is dropped down halfway.

I don't know which one I'll choose, and hey, I may decide to have a bit of fun and make some mirror image blocks. Who knows?

I sure don't!

 Huh? What do you mean, you don't know?

Down here, the ad on TV when someone isn't seeing as good as they should " Should have gone to Spec Savers". Maybe they do baby specs. Love your reds.

FUN photo of Little Miss. Laying out a big stack of blocks and designing your own layout is one of the best parts of making quilts (that and choosing the fabrics). Have fun!!

All of those layouts are really fun! I'm sure you'll come up with something wonderful!
What is it about babies in specs?!? So cute!
