    Here are a few layouts for the some of the blocks from the Boom 3.0 swap. DD, DH, and I each did one. There will be sashing, but I don't know what color until I choose the layout. Which one do you like the best?

    I would pick #3. I like the way you put the lightest one in the center and the darkest ones in the outside corners. JMO

    Is your plan to make three quilts from these beautiful blocks? If you're making one long, narrow quilt, I like number 3 the best. It looks much more balanced :wink: Otherwise, I think I would be tempted to use more of the blocks and make one larger quilt. How's that for about 2 cents worth of advice? :? Anything you do with these blocks is sure to be beautiful. They are so colorful, and I love the designs used. :thumbup:

    I was actually drawn more to #2 but I also like #3. All are very nice blocks & I like the suggestion to make a larger quilt from more of the blocks if that is a possibility.

    what ever number you pick is going to be good because the blocks are great. I do agree with #3 as well

    I decided to use more, if no all, of the blocks and make a bigger quilt. I will have DH lay them out since he is good at it and I am not. Mine was #2.

    Thanks for the advice, it was extremely helpful!
