    no matter how "random" you try to make it, some placements are just not quite right!

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Very pretty fabrics! Sometimes we end up with a new layout by pieces not being where we wanted them. I assume you're referring to the green on green in the 9 patch blending with the same fabric rectangle below it? It might work better in the center of the 9 patch, but is it really worth tearing it out? You decide.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    i was still fussing around with this post when you posted, i think. both are patterns that i have made from my own notes and measurements. i am not sure if there is an official name for the blocks. this is the original posting of the lime green and purple quilt: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...n-t210508.html thank you for asking!

    i was using a fat quarter package and didn't make exact plans when i started. so, when it came time to put it altogether, i just did the best i could. more and different patterns would have worked better.

    It is lovely and if we wanted perfect (is there such a thing) we would go to the store and buy something made in China. I love yours even with its little quirks. they were planned that way, right!

    I think it looks good. I like the "randomness"of it too. Also love the colors. I'm doing a pink and green and trying to work out the best layout for my own random design and I can appreciate your efforts - it's not easy but it sure is fun!

    I noticed that no matter how carefully I thought I was laying out my Double Slice Layer Cake quilt, the same thing happened. Maybe while sewing blocks into rows, I switched something , liking it better, but not realizing that it was not going to co-ordinate with the row above/below. However, in the final analysis, I think that it just adds more interest to the whole picture and I am at peace with it. That's my story and I am stickin' to it.

    Purples and greens go together so well one of my favourite combos.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!
