Back to Square One

It is amazing how bored I have been without my machine. I sure hope I get her back before the weekend. If not, I may just lose my mind!

Last night I got to thinking that I REALLY did not like the layout of my NEPTUNE SCRUFFY QUILT. So, I decided since I have nothing better to do I would take it apart and lay it out differently. I didn’t like the placement of the black squares…to lined up, and I didn’t notice it until after I had it sewn together. Anyway, I laid it out differently and It appeals to me more. What do you think?

I like it much better than this…

I am happy I took it apart. Now if I can just get my sewing machine back!

I like it a whole lot better the new way!

I too like the new way better. The randomness of the dark blocks and scattering of the aqua blocks is a great improvement.

Yes, I like the new way, too. I hope you get your machine back so you can get it back together.

had to go back and forth a few times to figure out which was before and which was after
really...dont' see a big difference
as in it didn't bother me before!!
if you are happy with it that is all that matters.

I think it looks very nice, Rene. I also hope you get your machine back soon.

I like the new way too. For your scruffy quilt, are those charms & jelly roll strips? I have Woodland Bloom left overs & I'm thinking this is the pattern I could use.

I like your new lay out better, Rene.
I sure hope your machine gets back soon. Have you given them a call yet to see what the problem is? The Bernina shop I go to usually has a backup of machines because everyone knows the tech there is the absolute best around - for all machines.

Looks great!

I have to agree with you the new layout is better.
Hope your machine comes home real soon!

Sorry you had to pick it out, I know that is a long and boring process, but I guess it gave you something to work on while your machine was out! It looks great the new way, not that the other way wasn't nice, I just agree with you that the random placement is better! Very cute!!

I saw a tip on a blog somewhere... don't remember which one... that you should take a picture of the layout with a digital camera before you settle on it. That way you can look at the whole layout on your computer and it is easier to see things like the black squares being too lined up. :)

Yes, I do like it better, although I didn't notice the difference between the two pictures at first, until you pointed out why you were changing it. It looks great now though and I really love those neptune fabrics. Good job. It's going to be such a cute quilt!
