This is the time I wish I had a large design wall!  I finished all 80 scrappy split 9-patch blocks, so I decided to play with layouts.

First I placed the blocks in a symmetrical layout.  It looks good, but is a bit boring!

 Then I rearranged them into a more asymmetrical design, but it still doesn't feel right to me.
I tried playing with different layouts in Electric Quilt, but it wasn't as satisfying as playing with the actual blocks!

I guess I'll have to continue to twist and turn.  I had to stand on a step-stool to take a picture that would show most of the design!

Maybe this one will be the winner.
Let me know which one you would choose.

Check out all the creativity at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times


  1. I really like that last one, Susan! It isn't awfully traditional, which makes it interesting and different.

  2. ANY of them would work, but I like the last one best. What a pretty set of blocks.

  3. Yea to the last one. You've got a traditional scrappy block and then zing, put it in an untraditional setting. What size are your blocks? Did you start these because of Bonnie Hunter's leader and ender challenge?

  4. Yep, the last one, but they all are beautiful!

  5. There is no bad way to put the split 9-patches together. Have fun with them.

  6. love the scrappiness of it The non traditional layout is more dramatic!

  7. The last one--interesting, but still traditional in its' own way.

  8. I like all three, but would make the last one because I haven't seen that one before. Creative.
