    Hi again everyone! I want to thank you all for your comments, hints & tips that everyone sent. The encouragement I got made me suck it up and go ahead with my sewing and I just finished my quilt top! I took your advice & turned & rotated the blocks till they were more even & balanced, especially the dark ones. I spaced out the green ones better too I think. You guys were right, a border makes all the difference in the world! I'm glad I finished it & will send it out to be quilted now. It looks much better to me now although it still isn't my favorite, still can't put my finger on why, I think it's the colors but it was a learning experience for me. This is only my 3rd quilt! Can't wait to start my next one in the next day or so!

    Not only is it pretty - but it looks like you did a SUPER job on it - putting a quilt on point isn't the easiest thing, but you did a great job!

    WOW. I pulled up the original post, and yeah, the patches looked a bit awkward. But your rearrangement did wonders! It looks great!

    Turned out really nice. That's the beauty of this board...someone always has an idea for you when you are stuck. I love the small reddish border and floral large boarder...
    Hmmm....That was my (and I'm sure lots of other people's) response to your original post. It turned out great!
