    Gee, that's a tough call. I like them both. In the first one I would want to move the blues on the right away from the blue center. It may be stealing value from the blue on the right just a bit.
    The second layout is excellent and much busier to me than the first.
    As a third idea I wondered if you want to run them diagonally and take a photo.
    You did such a good job and sooooo many pieces to work with. They are beautiful.
    Regards, Dorothy

    How about a diagonal color wash going from darkest to lightest, or the other way around?

    Beautiful blocks. If you used the first layout but started the middle with the lightest color and go out with the medium and then ending with the dark.

    I thought of diagonal from light to dark. But either one is fabulous. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    I love the layout, love the quilt, love the colors, love the pattern. Which by the way is named??? and where can I get one? and is it paper-pieced?

    I only saw the first one but then went back and looked at the second. Both are gorgeous so it's my humble opinion that you should make another set of blocks and do BOTH layouts. :lol:
    The first is wonderful but then so is the second. The second seems to wonderfully blend a little wild with a little serenity.

    so...during the long night i did try a couple layouts i didn't bother taking pics of because i just didn't like them...and 96 blocks is a bit time consuming to lay out :-D
    so, anyway...i'm going to try a couple of your suggestions...diagnal...light to dark...so, more pics coming...after i go home and get some sleep ;)

    you can find this pattern in the January/February 2010 McCalls Quilting magazine. i think in the magazine it was called "Rise and Shine"

    i made a quilt a couple years ago using the same technique but different 'pattern' i really have fun with these. i will show pics of the steps later (ya know...after some sleep/these 16 hour shifts are killer)

    the fabrics were this 14 piece fat quarter collection i won in a drawing from a quilt shop i had signed up for their newsletter! they are beautiful! and so out of my 'box' something i never would have purchased...but they arrived...quite a surprise! and i looked at them and ooh'd & auhhh'd and put them away (october) then January comes along, new magazine catches my eye and AHA! that would be PERFECT for those fq's!!!
    still took me awhile to get to the project...i've always got 10 going at once :roll: but i am happy that i finally decided to play :thumbup:
    so anyway...thanks everyone...i will show more later...
