Design Floor Monday

I got a little sewing done this weekend.  I'm working on a kit I bought at the Houston Quilt Show. It is a pattern from the book, "Six Halves Make a Whole Lot More." This quilt is called Irish Mist. Here's where I am at...


Ooops...good thing I haven't sewn the two sides on yet because the corner pieces are going the wrong way...bonding time with my seam ripper will be next.

The corners of this quilt are supposed to be randomly placed, 2 1/2" squares. I'm not very good with random. So I tried out three different options. 

#1


#2


#3


I am going with #2.

If you haven't guessed...the premise of the book is quilt patterns mostly using a 1/2 yard of six fabrics. There are six other projects in the book, four quilts and patterns for pillows and placemats.

I like #2 but that is me - love the colors in this quilt. I haven't bought many kits but when I do I haven't always followed the direction LOL

I like the way this is coming together. I saw your post over the weekend but was hauled away before I could read about it. I agree option #2 is your best layout. The book sounds interesting how would you rate it good, must own, nice change...?
