Feeling Blue Blocks Together at Last

And now for your entertainment, playing with blocks and settings....

All the Feeling Blue squares together once again. This is just the "usual" setting. Kind of reminds me of the Bento Box pattern, but of course in that pattern there aren't any raw edges! These blocks we're working with are basically a BullsEye pattern done in squares instead of circles.

Here they are a bit mixed up, but still square-ish. Note the light in the center is just from my studio lights being on when I took these first three pics.

And this is a kind of center and pushing away setting.

And here is the maybe final version of that setting. Which one do you like the best? I made a couple extra blocks to get the size right. It is going to be hard to pick one of these settings and actually start sewing, playing around with these blocks is too much fun. And I can't wait to see what Adrienne and Jaye come up with for their quilts (my two swap buddies). Posted by Hello

It's kind of hard to tell from what I can see on my computer moniter..but I think I like the first or second version best. Jen

My vote is for the last version or the first...but I prefer the last arrangement.

The second one is my favorite. The first one is my least-favorite. Numbers 3 & 4 pretty much tie for the middle for me.

I like the first best. But I'd like the last a lot better if the bull's eye block (for lack of a better name) was off towards one of the corners more. Great colors and I love the idea...

OhOh, yeah, what Lisa said! I stopped back by to see what others had said...what if you played with them so that you had maybe three places where the blocks really make a square (instead of just one in the center) and scatter them around, not-too-evenly and play out the other blocks off those? (I hope that makes some sort of sense!)

The second setting is more interesting.

I like the first. That solo square detracts froom the overall design - which I really like!

I really like the first - and I'm not usually a fan of "traditional" patterns, but this has enough LIFE inthose squares to just mess enough with people's heads, LOL!

I also like the first. Whatever you choose, it's going to be marvy! Those blocks are delish. I also like the idea of creating a few bullseye blocks and spreading the around the whole design.
