Mystery Quilt 2013 - Well Shoot

Well shoot. I decided to mess with a little more layout after reading some initial comments from Cindy to see if I could get a better idea of what I wanted.

This was fun times for the cats and my fabric is really scattered now.

Anyway, check out this mix of the two blocks I preferred. Turn out that once in the full assembly my second layout (I know, it gets confusing...block on the right, top row) is holding up the best in full assembly.

I could alternate the two layouts as shown below, but I don't think it will be the best look.

It seems to be that option 2 shows pattern best with all the scrappy fabric. The final quilt will have 12 of these units.

How does it look to others?


  1. Now I'm not sure whether I should say anything or not! LOL! I do like how the blocks come together as a unit with the two different block layouts.


    P.S. I wish I had a cat to mess up my sewing.

    1. No! I love opinion. It was actually killing me to be working on this and having no one to ask ideas. Not to worry at all! This is why I send it out, to hear what others are seeing.

      And see, even I like the alternating blocks better in the morning. :)

      I know, the cats really are funny. The second I laid to board down and started arranging there was chaos going on around me.
