Final Layout!

YES we have a winner! Thank you to Tammy and my mom, who both suggested moving the pinwheels to the outside.

Woohoo! Now when I look at this, my eyes immediately go to the sign that says "Larry's Garden," as they should!

There's still a lot to do on this quilt. I plan on enhancing each block with at least a little embroidery. I also wanted to add a bunch of cute insects, but now I'm thinking they may just clutter it and would be better off in the border. And of course, I need to plan the border! No idea what it will look like, but this sucker needs to be big enough to snuggle under, so it is definitely getting more fabric added to it. I really want some cool applique on the border, and I am still trying to plan out how that will look.

For now, I'm proud of the progress I've made. This thing is really shaping up!


  1. Wow! It is gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing the outside borders.

  2. Very cool! I have been following your progress on this and so impressed that you finished it so quickly. Your dad will love it. One suggestion on the quilting - how about doing some free motion quilting of bees, ants, beetles? Those shapes lend themselves well to line quilting.
