This shows the rows laid out but not sewn together. As it got later in the afternoon/evening as I was working on this Saturday I started messing up where the stars were being placed. (I had an EQ printout of how I wanted the quilt to look.) When I finished all the rows this is how it would look. (That beige on the side is carpet!)
Um, no, I absolutely do not like those two light aqua squares together. I fussed around with the layout once I was back at Sharon's house and came up with a new layout and I'm going to add one more star as it seemed bare of stars in the middle. I'll get a new picture of it once all the rows are sewn together. But first, I need to drive home.
Goals were almost all achieved last week.
