    I just love all the helpful information you all share. It has been hot so yesterday I did whatever I could so I was right in front of my window AC, including washing the vertical blinds. I hang my sheet on that wall also.

    I would appreciate your honest opinions and thoughts. I purchased a group of blocks on ebay. I'm having a time deciding how to put them together. Included are two pictures of different layouts when I put them up on my flannel sheet. I have five more blocks left but they are the red print and I was trying to figure out what to do with the blue print.
    One is like a drunkard path, the other is what they advertised them on ebay as a "snowball". I tried to keep the setting fabrics which are all feedsack grouped together. Maybe they should all be randomly spaced.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    it's hard to say for sure because the pictures are too teeny tired for my aged eyes ... but i think i like the circles. because of the differing background fabrics, they look as though they're floating around. kinda kewl. :)

    I like the circles - less "traditional". They almost look 3-D.

    It is hard to say. I downloaded them to try and increase their size but they lose all focus when I do that. But from what I can see I would agree with the above opinions. The one the makes the circles does appear to float and looks like it would be quite interesting :-)

    They are both nice, but it looks like the cirlce lay out is the clear winner so far!

    Well I would have to go against the grain.....I like the top one best....Just seems more interesting to me. Make a pillow out of the red. Do the one you like best....that way it will be a sure winner
    :D
