    Any Obvious mistakes???

    OK, I finished the blocks for a charity quilt going to a homeless veteran and just want your eyes to check if there is anything wrong with the layout. I hope to sew up the blocks into row and have a quilt top done by tomorrow evening.

    Here is my layout on EQ7 and then the actual layout of the blocks on my design wall. THANKS for your help.

    What a pretty quilt. The homeless veteran is going to be soooo pleased to have this quilt. I don't see a single thing wrong with it. Thanks for your generosity to this deserving soul.

    Beautiful quilt! I don't see any mistakes, but I do have a suggestion. Could you move one of the blocks at the top center that have the dark watery blue? Having them together appears to make a "T" and it distracts my eye from the pattern. Maybe trade the lower one with the one below it that has the dark neutral background.

    It's a nit-picky suggestion but easy to do at this stage if you want to.

    What is the name of that quilt? You did an awesome job. Somebody will certainly be glad to receive it. Just looks warm and cozy.

    don't ask me! I only see 'obvious' mistakes when they are also permanent mistakes! I think the quilt will be great and very appreciated, too.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Fabulous! I loved your computer picture and the actual quilt looks beautiful. How did you solve the issue of some of the jelly roll strips being too narrow? Did you just adjust the seam allowance ?
    I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing.

    Awesome quilt and great fabrics for the recipient. Problem with moving things around... you can spend all day and still find things that need to be moved. I think it looks marvelous but I'm still waiting for the name of the pattern.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Great quilt. If there is anything wrong, I certainly don't see anything. I'm sure this is going to be so appreciated.

    Great job! I agree with moving that one square so that like fabrics don't form that T.
