What is 25 times 56?

1400! That's how many 2-1/2" squares I cut to make this granny square quilt! Now I am sashing these blocks and will get them sewn together next week. This one is for a birthday in October, so I am way ahead of the game.
I have been playing with the layout in Picassa and so far this will be the one I am using. Please, if anyone sees something that looks wonky, tell me. There is one block in the bunch that bugs me, but I am leaving it. How does this layout look to you?

and if you are looking for the giveaway, you can find it here.

I got the numbered comments straightened out but now I am having a few layout problems. Sorry for the messed up sidebar...it's a work in progress.

Thanks for stopping by,

Fabulous and I like the grey sashing in the drawing. Worth the effort of all those squares : )

I can't find the block buggering you - it looks just fine.

Danny said...

I think it looks great. The colors are evenly spaced and I think the gray sashing will go perfectly with it.

Looks great to me too! ( could the bottom green one be the 'bug'?)

Great layout - it has that random-but-carefully-balanced look about it.

oh, i love this quilt!!!

Jennyroo said...

I love it! The third row, the three blocks on the right... did you think about breaking up the green there? Maybe swap one down to the bottom row on the left? Just an idea!

Leanne said...

This is lovely and will be even better once you are all finished.

Auntie Pami said...

LOVE this! the upper right block and the third down below it might be a little too close. Super duper beautiful.

Beth said...

I think the quilt looks great. In fact, seeing it has convinced me to start my own Reunion quilt.

I'm wondering if you're looking at the second block from the left in the second row. To me, that is somewhat indistinct, with perhaps not enough contrast between the different design elements.

But I offer that tentatively, because I really think your quilt looks great.

Oh wow- that layout looks grand- How do you do something like that on Picasa- it looks like it's complicated? off to google it, but if you feel like it, maybe you could (smiles winsomely) do a tutorial? I am totally impressed with your layout!

It looks perfect to me! Well done!

kari said...

1400? That is quite a few, I think it looks great! How do you work on your layout on the computer?

Brigitte said...

I love it just the way it is. Every time I see it!
