    Ugh--I wish I was easier to please. I've had three final lay-outs. :roll: :| :roll: :|

    It was exciting to make something from an EQ6 design--but I wish I wasn't SO PICKY!

    Now I just have to sew it together.

    Here's the story:

    This it? Nope.

    sharon--I just added the rest. I'm not going to look at it. I'm sick of looking at it! :roll:






    I looked. I see one that needs changing.

    I love it! I like the way one color fades into the next. I think you're a genius!

    Karla, it's going to be another winner. It's just as I imagine it would feel to stand under a fall tree canopy. (Being a California girl, raised on the coast, I have to imagine this.) It's beautiful!

    :lol: :lol: You had my attention there for a minute!!

    I sent this link to these to my daughter. She's on her way back to college from a weekend camping trip--I'm afraid she's going to have a suggestion--a very good suggestion--when she sees them. But at least it's not like laying out a 100 block log cabin!!

    Remind me--once the horse tops are done--to try a two fabric pattern of SQUARES! Better yet, BIG RECTANGLES!

    Oh, I already decided--no borders. But the binding may be tricky--I want green by the greens, bright by the brights, darks by the darks. I need to study that "keep it simple" lesson some more.

    You know if you change that one you will start changing others!
    Reminds me of fall leaves.

    Absolutely beautiful as the final. Can't see a block you should change. Thanks for the trip down picture lane to the end.

    I've been following your progress. I admire your designs and your patience. Great job. I think your 'final' layout is perfect. Now sew it before you change it again. Are you going to do borders and if so, do you have any ideas for them?

    It is so beautiful! I am ready to start sewing on mine. I've been cutting for awhile now, yuk! I have read a few different ways to sew them, some say not to sew all the ways to the center of the points, what do you suggest? Thanks so much.

    Really like your color progression. Good luck with the binding, sounds like a great - but difficult - plan :)

    Weeeellll... I figured out a way to do it that worked for me when I did Kayak on the Lake, then I read the book that came with the rulers and found out I was doing it nearly the opposite way the ruler person says to. I even do things she says NOT to do. Sigh. :roll: I tried it her way with this top--but the squares came out bad. So--I went back to my idea.

    I lay out the eight larger triangles first--then pair them up and sew and iron. Then I lay those pairs out and sew them and iron. I iron all these seams going the same direction. Then I sew the two halves together and iron that seam open. Then I add the outer smaller four triangles and iron out. I asked my quilter if the centers gave her any trouble on Kayak-and she said "not a bit!" I like how they look--they have a kind of swirl in the middle (well, when everything matches up nicely).

    I'd love to see what you're doing! What colors?? Good luck! :-D

    Boston--Rachel liked the last one best!! Whew!! :lol:

    Farmer Girl (love that name!)--I did something similar before (barn quilt) and you are so right--it was a pain! But--I think it's best for this, so I shall pursue and endure. :lol:

    I have the design on EQ6, but unlike you, I don't know how to get it from there to here! If I can figure out how to do that, I'd be happy to show you what I have planned!
