I'm going to mess with the blocks a little more, ie: play with the pattern placements, but other than that I am going to try to quit being ocd and just go with it.


    Looks great, but I have a question before you begin quilting - as we are looking at this on the screen, I noticed on the bottom left that one strip with a darker red block is going at a different diagonal direction from the others - is this the way it is meant to be? I just don't want you to get going really good, and quilt this and it may be in the wrong place. Please don't think I am being critical, but I did notice this. Hope you don't mind my telling you about it.

    You guys are so great! What a confidence booster!! I have definitely turned the bottom block. Hopefully finishing the rows tomorrow and off to get the border! Cant wait, this is such an exciting point! Lol!

    I love it! I'm glad you decided to add another row. Can't wait to see it with your borders.

    I did not comment on your previous post but wanted to say your latest layout looks great and so glad you fixed that block on the bottom. I am in the process of making this same quilt (Buckeye Beauty). Mine is all in browns, tans, blacks and grays. I have half my blocks done. Hope mine ends up looking as good as yours.

    Looks good, although I hope you change that block going wrong way at the bottom.
