arranging blocks

I finished all 9 of these blocks already. This was the perfect project for those few minutes here and there when I can sit down at my machine.
Now that I can see all the blocks together the busy background ones don't bother me anymore.













Now I can have lots of fun deciding how to arrange them :0)
This 2nd picture was how I had planned to lay them out but now I'm leaning toward the top arrangement.
I suspect this project will push ahead of the small stack of "waiting to be quilted quilts" It's a fun, happy quilt and I want to finish it asap so I can start using it.

Happy Quilting!!

What a fantastic little quilt!! I think I like the top setting better. It's a little more relaxed and goes with the feel of the blocks. Beautiful!!

The blue backgrounds were a good choice. Makes the stars pop.

What a beauty - I like the second arrangement, alternating dark and light backgrounds makes the blocks stand out individually.

I like the first arrangement better too. It looks more scrappy and random and none of the blocks seem to have priority.

Janet said...

I love the blue background, they make the stars sparkle. I like the top too, it looks more random and the lights seem to draw the eye to those lighter blocks more in the second photo.

wonderful star blocks. I love your scrappy blues, it makes that yellow sparkle!

Oh, they are very pretty. I am leaning toward the 2nd photo but I see others like the first better. Your quilt!

What a perfect quilt! I like the top arrangement better too. Really love the fabrics you chose. Reminds me of being cozy inside and seeing the snow falling outside.

Decisions, decisions! Great little quilt! Love your Crowfoot as well. Looks like you just couldn't stop making those very cool blocks!

I love these stars against the blue background. So very pretty. I also love your crowfoot quilt in the previous post. Then I went looking around some more and discovered your gorgeous applique!

Hi Janet, I'm a new blogger and have been enjoying reading other quilt blogs. I just read yours from earliest to latest post. I loved seeing all your quilts, your hand quilting and your applique. I don't see how you have time for all these projects with 4 kids! I also loved the touching stories of your past like your pin cushion and the time you and your sister tried to destroy one of your grandmother's quilts with a coat hanger so you could have a new comforter. Thanks for all the inspiring posts!
