Last night I asked for suggestions on my previous layout. I'm quite happy with this current layout, so I think I'm going to finish it this way. These 1" squares aren't sewn together yet, just laying there waiting to be sewn (hoping hubby doesn't mess with them, they are on the ironing board in the kitchen).
Thanks for looking!
Edited to add - I have named it "Strawberry Patch" because when my teenager first saw it she immediately thought of Strawberries.
