Bloggers are the Greatest!

Thanks to everyone who made suggestions on the layout of the Arrowhead quilt!
My favorite layout was the lighter in the middle one -

Some people suggested I try a random layout, so here it is -

I think my favorite is still the lighter in the middle.
One of the best suggestions I received was to think of how I was going to quilt it! (Thanks Cheryl!) What a great concept and one I never think of!! I think I could try quilting something different in the lighter section.

Tomorrow I will post Block #4 of the Quilt Along and I need to work on the Quilt Whisperer course that I am taking. Lesson #2 is full of quilt design ideas for us to try out - so I have some homework to do (my children find this hilarious!!).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

I too love the lighter in the middle. And thanks for the pointer on how to make that block. I'm going to give it a try. Looks simple.

I love your new quilt! Very nice and I do like the lighter in the middle version.

I have been trying to get all of my house work done this morning so that I can start on my Block 2 in your quilt along. I'm a little behind but I do plan on trying to get caught up.
