    Here is the start of laying out my black and red quilt. The blocks are all sizes, so filler here and there will be needed. There are 5 different blocks, all made in two different sizes.

    Now the fun begins on how to get it all put together.

    Wow, CB, that looks briliant - no wonder you changed your avatar, it's that one just there, isn't it? Great job, I look forward to seeing it finished. Who is this one for?

    The cats have already been playing with the blocks, I think I am going to have to work on it today whether I want to or not now that it is on the floor.

    Thank you very much everyone.

    I know have to figure what is going in the spaces, I have left over pieccs frommhe blocks as well as another red that is different than what is already used.

    I thought to use up some of the scraps form the blocks and then I have this other red pieces that I thought maybe. I am kind of nervous, there is not straight rows, so there will be some corners etc going in, but what can I do, I don't want that look.
