    I tried the red blocks in the middle and didn't like them there so I took most of them out. I also took out some of the tan blocks. I tried smaller, calmer cubes and they didn't work either. I am still not crazy about this. So, I am going to assemble it and use it to practice my "short arm" quilting.

    Sometimes you just want to get it done. I know the feeling. Please show us the finished project. It will still keep someone warm and will be filled with lots of love.

    I agree with Sandy about the "swirling" on the top arrangement. It was my first reaction, and I found myself trying to follow the "swirl" ... (two votes means it is a winner, right??? LOL) the one thing about that top picture was - - I didn't even really notice the blocks that were more solid ... I can't imagine the whole thing bordered with tan or purple - - this is really getting good! So fun (I hope it is for you, also!)

    That is a good "lastest" attempt. Go for it and let's see how it ends. Always remember - - no effort is wasted because you grow and learn something, always.

    It's hard to be sure about colors from pics on line.It's your quilt,so do what works for you.The quilt after quilted might turn out to be a fav & kudos to your DD for helping.Every quilt made brings it's own learning curve with it.If/when you do another OBW,it will prob seem very easy.

    I really like your latest attempt. The colors are arranged so your eye follows around and sees all. Any thoughts on borders? Will you use some of the original fabric in a border?

    I am still struggling. I probably should have left it alone, bit I tried again. It just seems like there is a nice quilt somewhere in these block but I can't find it!

    I like that. Did you applique the Faith, Hope and Love on there? With them on there, those solid tan don't jump out there as much.
