This one would have let me use an uneven number of rows/columns
This one really wants to be in multiples of six
This is the layout I've settled on for the first quilt. I'm really happy with it, even if I have to unpick about 6 blocks and resew them, as they're a bit far off on the corners. They all still need trimming. This layout gives lots of movement and secondary shapes which I like.
The blocks will end up at 8 inches finished, so I should end up with a lap quilt 64 x 48 inches.
The layout for the second, mirrored blocks is completely up in the air. I still have another 18 blocks to sew before I start to lay it out.
