First- Have you gone and looked at all the wonderful winners of the Blogger's Quilt Festival? And all the entries?? There is some seriously fabulous inspiration there. You should go check it out if you want some serious eye candy!
I have been playing with layouts for my stitch and flip blocks. Because I guess I like to know where I'm going before I get to the end of a quilt... It has been really bothering me. How is it going to look when I'm done making all the wonky gloriousness? So I have been rearranging them in different layouts, trying to decide so I will cease to be paralyzed by a lack of a known destination...
I sort of stumbled on this one by accident. I was trying to show the boyfriend what I was doing and just laid them out randomly... but then it started to look like fun diamonds radiating from the center. So I went with it. I kinda like this one. I wonder how it would look in a full quilt? Maybe with the central diamond off center? Or maybe with a few large diamond-y things? Hmmm.
There is also this diamond-y layout. I quite like how wonky they look. Another possibility.
This one has possibilities if I make all the little blocks sit on point. Then they kinda look like poorly drawn hexagons with pretty points. Like weird multi-colored suns?
I could also add a little more dead space and make rows of bow ties/butterflies. Or whatever you wanna call them. I prefer to think of them as weird little butterflies. This one could be fun, too... AH!
What do you think? Any preferences? Or other ideas? I could also make some with just one bright corner. Or four. Or three. See what I mean? I could do SO MANY THINGS. I thought this was just going to be easy and fun... But now... I don't know what to do. Any suggestions are totally welcome.
THANKS. What have you been playing around with lately?
