Just When You Think You Know


Last weekend, I was able to quickly whip up my Wayward Transparency blocks and I popped outside (while there was a shimmer of sun) to take a picture of what I was confident would be my quilt layout.  Then Facebook happened.

After seeing all the different layouts everyone was trying, I decided to start turning my blocks to see what would happen.





So now who knows what I'll use.  Maybe I will do drawings of the layouts and start thinking about quilting designs.  That just might be the answer to the layout conundrum...that and stay off Facebook.


Then we have this fabric pull of cute little gray and white dots and a fun shiny gold FQ bundle.  I decided that these fabrics would be perfect for making Dog Gone Cute blocks to send to Karen to help with her disaster relief efforts from the hurricanes.


I have one more little puppy to go and then I believe I will go ahead and turn these in to a wall hanging to send to her.  I figure by the time Karen arrives in Texas she will be swimming in puppies, so I thought it would be nice to go ahead and train mine for her so that she can hopefully get them on their way to a new home.  She won't have to house break them :)


Look at all these beautiful blocks (and it's not even half of them)!  These are some of the blocks I received from the guild's block exchange Monday night.  So many beautiful fabrics.  I hate to do it, but I'm going to have to pack them away for just a little bit, till my sewing room gets back under control.  The good news, is I should start gaining some finishing ground.  I have the Windy Days baby quilt and Butterfly Meadow Mystery all finished up.  I'm just waiting for some sunshine so I can take pictures and tell you all about them.  So fingers crossed....some sort of finish for Friday.


Today I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social and Midweek Makers

I almost always read blog posts in chronological order, but I couldn't scroll past your Wayward Transparency photo. I had to come read about it! Yes, there are so many fun ways to arrange the blocks!! :) Your blocks look great and I'm excited to see how you decide to arrange yours. Sounds like a great plan with the puppy blocks (very kind of you to house train them for Karen), and the guild block exchange looks like a great success! I hope you are having a wonderful week.

Hi Tish,
Oh, those layouts - how will you ever decide?! And those puppies are too darn adorable. It looks like you have been very productive! I can't wait to see which layout you choose. ~smile~ Roseanne

Susan said...

Very tough decision, but I think you would have played around anyway, Facebook or not. Personally, I version three in the column of four. That is if you're looking for votes!
Thanks for sharing you conundrum!

I like symmetry, so agree with Susan. I have another set of teal fabrics, but as the mauve ones have light as fabric A, might just get some more dark teal and change it. Trained puppies, that is so welcome an idea. Block exchanges, wonderful.

HI, Tish! You have been busy. So great to see all your guild blocks and know I got to see some in person. How did you do the exchange?

Facebook or Pinterest can take you down a rabbit hole, giving more options than answers at times. Hopefully you don't get sucked in. The guild exchange blocks are gorgeous.

Cheryl said...

Thanks for showing all of the layouts! I am going to have to play around with mine (once I catch up with the quilt along).

Emily said...

Such choices! Your transparency blocks are beautiful. I love those puppies!!!!! No matter what version of those blocks I see, they are always beyond cute!

Lorna McMahon said...

Your Transparency blocks look great! I originally thought I liked the first layout... But then the second layout was drawing me in. I can't wait to see what you end up choosing to do! That is so sweet of you to train your puppies for Karen before you send them off for her worthy cause. Happy training!

Facebook has a lot to answer for I think. Whichever layout you choose I know when you add your magic it will be wonderful.

Hmmm I'm playing catch up again

Sue said...

I'm just about to get started on my WTQ and now having seen yours I can see I'm going to need some decision making time at the end. I love those dogs!
