I belong to a group I call Faithful Circle Quilters Equilters, or FCQEquilters for short. We are all former members of the Columbia, Maryand quilt guild, Faithful Circle Quilters. (except, I've maintained my membership as I try to go to some of the classes and meetings when I am in the area.) There are 6 members who each requests a specific block(s) that the rest of us make. Or sometimes many quilts from. Last year I designed a block that I called Plaza del Sol as I had taken the idea from a plaza in Cancun, Mexico during my vacation. I had put the blocks aside and continued with other projects. Yesterday I dragged them out and spread them on my design bed. (hey, all the company is gone so I can use the design bed again!)
Here are all the ways I could figure out to lay them out. Which is your favorite and why? (Ok, so if you don't want to say why that's ok too.)
Sample 1: (I have enough of the smaller blocks to add a colored row on the left and top so it would have a complete look to it.)
The colors are more accurate in sample one as I took the other two at night. And, in case you are interested, here's a close up of my block:
Share your favorites. I will be putting this together between my other activities. I am going to try to finish NYE 2009 Mystery today and use the Carolina Christmas Mystery as my leaders and enders. Once I decide on my lay out for Plaza Del Sol I will use that as leaders and enders. Things are getting busy around here so I need to focus on getting things done and staying warm! I'm hoping on staying in the house all day tomorrow and just go out tomorrow for the Wednesday Quilters.
Happy Quilting All!
