I did a OBW and where I was in doubt I chose a solid/tonal to go with it and put those in places I thought I needed to add a little more interest and filled in all the edges with the same color.

That is going to be a beautiful quilt. I too like the arrangement that you have.

I love it the way it is. Good for you to just start sewing.

This sounds very like a very interesting way to solve the problem with some OBW. Do you have a picture you could post? I'd love to see it.

I always try to make a secondary swirly design.
I get the ones that are my favorite and put them on my wall in a wavy pattern and then design from there by adding the blocks that I think match on either side.
Also, usually when you cut poorly on a set, you usually have 3 that are not too bad. I use these to square my quilt so that I have some "extras."
Btw this is nice fabric for a OBW.
My only other hint is to tell you to play with it and when it is right, you will know it.
I hope this makes sense to you.
Good luck.

Looks good with the darkest shades in one corner working down to the lighter. You did well.

I love it just like it is.
Don't drive yourself nuts by over thinking it.

I'm not sure how you can avoid Y seams here. Just remember to stop and start 1/4 of an inch from the ends. :-)
