    I have been playing around with this one today and I think this lay out works. What do you all think? It is going to be king size. Please be honest about it.

    Love what you have done here, it must have been fun trying out different ways to come up with your design, one of the best parts I think! Besides hand quilting that is!

    I really like it! Both the colors and the way you have arranged them.

    That's totally different! I really like it. The last pic looks best I think because you need to see it from a distance rather than close up because of the graphics. Keep going ~ looking great so far~! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Try an arrangement with color rows going across on the diagonal..I can see it in my head with alternating rows of color.

    While that is pretty, Have you tried diagonal rows? crosses? I think it might need some kind of unity , but maybe that is what you want and if so , it is pretty. Have you tried any other arrangements?

    I was thinking the same as a couple of the other posters, diagonal rows would look really great. Those blocks are soooooo neat! I love them! Post pictures when this is completed please!!!

    That is what I was thinking! but either way it looks good. One can hardly go wrong with a scrappy quilt!

    I kinda like the wonkiness. It's 'outside the box' type of quilt. A fun quilt.

    I love the layout the way it is. If you are lacking for a name, my Hubby suggested "shattered glass" or "shards of fabric" :)

    The way the second picture shows them, they almost take on the look of stained glass pieces, before leading.
    What a great way to use up your scraps!
