And I find taking a picture is a good way to not only preview the layout but to use for reference when you start to sew it together.
    I agree about the "needs to be more evenly distributed." That said, I've made my share of quilts that were purposely NOT evenly distributed. Do what makes you smile! :)

    I like the 1st one. Second one looks too choppy.

    I do not like the second one. The darks look out of place. The second one looks like the dark was just thrown in there somewhere. I like the first one better, makes more sense to the eye.

    Great job showing what you mean!

    I'm with Donna - that 2nd one looks so much better to me - and I'm relatively new to quilting - especially when it comes to placement.

    I am not crazy about either of the settings. Keep playing with them , you'll get.

    Like the second picture better, but try alternating the blocks in different places and see what you come up with that pleases your eye. Happy Easter!

    I would take every other row and turn it end for end so that the X's were on the left and next row, on the right. Does that make sense? Well, at least I know what I am trying to say. Hope you do too, if not, please ignore all attempts.

    I like the second layout better, but put the fourth white star in the corner too. I would try the darker blocks on the long sides and the lighter ones on the short sides and see if there is a loner for the middle. I am afraid I prefer my tops "balanced". Love the colours.

    What if you alternater blocks 1 and 3 on either side of the first picture? What would that look like. (I' m crazy about the second one. Only my opinion.) Good Luck!

    I like the first one because it looks planned and very symmetrical. The second one looks too busy for me. It's pretty, just busy. I don't know if a border would tone it down or not.

    I do think the blocks are beautiful? Do you have the name of the pattern?

    #2 is not bad, BUT I think you need to take the wht star block from the middle and flip it with the block in the lower rt corner. I think your color will flow better & balance will be achieved!

    No I don't have the name of it. The quilt store where this came from was doing 3 blocks 1 per week and as far as I know there is no name. I just checked the paperwork they gave and no name. Sorry I can't help you with that. On the paperwork, it just tells us how to cut and put the blocks together, then it tells us how to lay it out. The 2nd pic is the way the store is saying to lay it out and I just don't like it. I am going to play with the arrangement some and see what I can come up with. Will post more pics soon.

    I would switch the top left and bottom right block on the 2nd pic. See how that looks.

    I say move the bottom block on the right to the middle and the middle to the outside right, but i do like the second layout better if you do that
