shoo fly advice anyone? (2)

Posted by on April 25, 2010 in Uncategorized | 8 comments

Thanks to everyone who made suggestions regarding my shoo fly quilt. A couple of people thought it would be helpful to see pix of the different possible layouts. Here’s what I was able to come up with. Sorry about the picture angle–I don’t have much room to manuever. Your thoughts are VERY much appreciated.


  1. I like the last one the very best, but they are all really nice. Your combination of colors is beautiful!

  2. Kim –
    I like the third layout the best …. but then I love blocks set on point!

  3. Kim, My preference is 4 and then 2. It reflects my love of Trip Around the World and Straight Furrows Log Cabins. You sure did take a liking to this month's block! Very nice. Kathie L in Allentown

  4. I like #2!!

  5. 2 & 4 look good to me. Good luck choosing.

  6. I'm not going to be much help … when I try to choose a favorite, I can't decide between #1, #3 and #4 which one I like best.

    I think I would also try the on-point arrangement with the colors arranged in rows (or columns) and see how that looks.

  7. I like the last stepped version – the original way you had them pictured. Wow – can see that it took a lot of effort to move these blocks around to see the different effects. Very helpful to see.

  8. I like #1 best, like a wonky Amish.
