    Thanks CarrieM!

    I remember last year with the FWS how I got to not being able to "see" the blocks to pick out what needed to be added or skipped ... I'm pretty much there now. I really appreciated then, and again now, the help of my fellow trail riders!

    Wow...really nice looking. One comment....a few of the block have dark backgrounds with only a hint if yellow and it detracts from the balance in my view. Useable but place them carefully. My eye was drawn to them right away.

    Thanks GGal for the insights.
    While I only need 72 blocks for the size I want, I will be making extras. That way when I get to dealing with placement, I am not locked into just the 72 and can play til I feel the placement works before putting them all together.

    When I posted the first 45, someone noted that I had a problem as there was only one or two with the minimal-yellow and dark edges, so I worked on getting a few more into the mix. I think that will help provide a little "cloud-effect" amidst all the bright sun of this quilt, much like the muddy-blocks in the FWS ... and give the eye a place to rest. After all, IRL my eyes are photophobic!
