I arranged the blocks quite deliberately. With my minimal knowledge of colour theory and design I divided the charms into 3 groups:
- light - cream background
- medium - green, blue, pale pink background
- dark/bright - red, bright pink, brown background
I noticed that I'd placed most blocks that were directional right-side-up - as if the quilt had a top and bottom. I randomly changed some to see which I prefer. Here are the two side by side:
So the big questions are:
- How's my layout? I want the eyes to travel all over the quilt and not just focus on one part. Are there any squares I should swap around to better achieve this?
- What about the orientation of the squares? Random or all in the same direction? Can you even tell the difference between the two above?
