I love it all except....the center. There's just something slightly off about it to me, the twisted LC's I mean. The rest of the quilt flows so well, but this just doesn't "sync" with the rest. But the rest of the design and colors are gorgematious!! :mrgreen:

I prefer the 1st center better; the dark in the center of this design looks like it's a mouth getting ready to swallow something. You can't create a twist that would incorporate all four blocks? or maybe go with a brighter center rather than a dark one if you like the 2nd design better? Overall, the design is stunning; I love the twists!

The mouth thing is exactly what I saw and why I changed it! I prefer the original one myself but have some issues still with it - I know what Gai means... :? Just been looking - it's the 'box' effect around those 4 twist blocks that is bothering me - will have a play and see what I can come up with...

I've changed the colours in the centre to blend the twist LC blocks into the regular LC blocks surrounding them to try and get away from that 'box'effect. I think this is an improvement, how about you? :-D

K, how about taking the corner blocks and putting them back to back somehow. I can see how they would look like lips if they were turned one way, but the other way, with the center small square? Oh heck, I'm not the creative one, you are. :roll: :wink:
