Testing uploading a picture for my blog via iPhone.

This quilt has been finished and donated to the Investor's Group Alzheimer Walk happening this Sunday. U hope it raises some money for this worthy cause.

Easy Street

My blocks are not yet constructed but I've been playing with layout and borders in EQ7.  Here's where I've gotten to so far.

I will be taking this:

to this soon:

Alternate setting

or this setting?

Bonnie's setting

I'm waffling.  I'm feeling kinda lazy and want to avoid the set on point construction (#2) but I really like the look of it better.  #2 is how Bonnie designed it.  #1 is the lazy one I'm referring to.

I've had mixed reviews from friends and family about the colours, but I can't really think of what else to replace the yellow with.  Or maybe this?

or an alternate setting (setting the blocks straight creates an on point setting)

Update as of Friday night: Here is my first row on the design wall:

I still haven't decided on the final layout.  I'm struggling!  Not totally enthralled with my colours but trying to be patient as it's nowhere near done yet and it's too early to judge the finished product.  Maybe I should head back to the sewing room and do some more blocks and stop fretting over it!

Until next time,
