I am in love with our Community Quilt right now. I have finished making the 64 blocks and they are nicely squared, which was absolutely necessary due to my poor ironing skills. Anyway, I took a little time over the weekend to position the blocks in different arrangements on my design bed.
You can make little diamonds. Now, the bed is not large enough for the entire quilt, so there would be a 4th column of diamonds in the final version. This is my favorite option.
You can make little squiggles. This was too hard for my eye to focus on. I was also having trouble envisioning quilting this, where with the diamond pattern you could do straight line diagonals or quilt a design in the center of each diamond. Here, I didn't see the same variety of quilting options.
My other half thinks this looks like a snake skin pulled over the bed. That is one massive, but colorful snake. This was really pretty from above and would make a great wall hanging. However, when my eye level is only a few feet above the bed (I'm a shortie) I could not see the full pattern and it looked like randomly placed blocks.
The diagonal blocks made me dizzy. Need I say more?
