And the layout is...

Thank you all for your comments on my last post.  Most everyone favored layouts A and 1, the versions I liked also.  Well...I was making those two layouts, but something happened along the way...and I am not exactly sure what happened.  Maybe it was subconscious as I was sewing the blocks together but here is what I ended up with.  I didn't even realize it until I sat down to write this blog entry.  I am happy with both but just am a bit concerned with my apparent rapid loss of brain cells.

Original layout A
Final version below.  I guess I started off with first block facing the opposite direction vs. what I intended.  Overall it is the "same" arrangement, just a different section of the overall design.  I added two borders--very Pennsylvania--bright colors, multiple borders.

As for the blue and white, look what happened here.
Original layout 1
Final version below.

What the heck????
I decided not to put a border on this one but it will have a surprise binding.  Hmmm...


  1. They both look great! I can't wait to see the binding on the blue one.

  2. Well they both came out just awesome!

  3. Very nice - and I LOVE surprise bindings as much as surprise backings!

  4. Well, I really like the way both turned out finally. That blue/white is going to be really special! ---"Love"

  5. So much for plans hey!?? Great results though! Sometimes the brain just takes over...and we need to let it as it knows what it is doing. It is either that or we end up with tin foil helmets on out heads to stop the alien influences...!?? heehee!

  6. I love the way the pink border in the first quilt added such interest. Great job.

  7. Looks to me as if your brain simply switched the layouts. Doesn't matter, both of them turned out nicely! Pink for the binding on the blue one? Nice touch!


  8. Okay, so you did 1 where A should have been and A where 1 should have been...I like the results! (Though I don't think any layout would have been a bad choice.)

  9. perfect oooohhhh I am going to love that binding :)
