    Well this is my third quilt top...
    I am not happy with the placement of colors.
    I can't believe a whole line of blues ended up together.
    This is where the brain injury shows it's issues.
    I am not however going to pull it apart...
    I am going to do some creative pondering.
    Watch to see what I can ponder up...
    heck I might amaze myself !!

    It's beautiful!!! Why don't you applique some big daisies on a couple of the blues -- and elsewhere...it would hide that "row"....

    Very "springy" looking. Some of those fabrics look like they came from Hancocks, I just ordered some of those. they sure look GREAT on your quilt. You are doing such a good job.

    It's great! If the row of blue bugs you, then I agree with the scattered appliqués idea.

    I think it is very pretty, mine sometimes end up with the same colors together, I have no excuse.

    Dreamer,
    This quilt is wonderful! I wouldn't change it. Even though it wasn't planned, the blue stripe makes it interesting.

    Pretty quilt. Butterflies great addition. I think we all have ended up with a "row" of same color or design at some time or another. You do not need a brain injury to do this, Keep up the good work. Enjoy

    Dreamer- the butterflies are a wonderful addition! And the blue squares in a row look like you meant to do it! A creative moment! Great job!

    Wow! Was just going to go to next pic until I saw the butterflies. The added butterflies makes it over the top. Now I know what to do with an idea that wasn't working. Thank's.
