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 every quilt is my favorite but they all deserve to be loved and used :)

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!
