Design wall

The weekend was spent sewing fan wedges and trimming and trimming some more.  Amazing how blocks sew together so much nicer when every block trimmed to the same size.  I'll spend a couple days arranging blocks before I sew the fans to the backgrounds because each round will be a different  background fabric.  There are are 4 blocks with the green stripe in the top six log cabin blocks in the center and 3 of the floral green in the bottom half so I need to mix them up.  You can't see it but there are 7 fans with a dark red on the bottom half and only 2 on the top.  I need to even things out.  I should set a stop watch for rearranging blocks because moving one fan or log cabin block to another area solves one problem but creates another and so the rearranging continues.  I will stop when I have the various fabrics distributed evenly across the quilt top or just say enough! --Ann--

The rearranging process, one thing leads to another! Can't wait to see the finished quilt.
