    I like both quilts! They're like a collage of wonderful blocks! I love the fans in the corners of the border in the first one. Very clever!

If you want to avoid set-in seams, come up with a standard measurement, maybe 18" and make either rows or columns that size. If you stagger where the blocks are with the filler units, it won't look like rows.

    Here's a photo of the finished quilt. I have others on my blog in Feb. 2010.

    Love this. Great use of the different sized blocks.
