HST layout.....

I'm having a hard time deciding on the layout for my HST's.......  this is from a charm pack of WeePlay, and of course AFTER I sewed and cut apart all the little HST's, I thought I should have made this a values pillow top..... but some HST's have two lights, and some have two darks :(  It's *kinda* working anyhow, but I'm just not sure......
this isn't quite all the squares - it will be 11x11 HST's.  Maybe I should just throw them in a bag and randomly sew them together in all directions?  Kinda like Katie's ''HST Love'' quilt?  I will continue pressing and trimming the remaining squares and maybe sew it together tomorrow (hopefully after some input!)

  1. I am seeing strong blues and reds. Can you arrange them so you play up these strong lines - i..e. have a blue diamond and then later a red diamond. Then the lighter colors will melt in between. If you like the diamond shape, you can also try an off center design.

  2. I was going to say it looks fine - but now I agree with Liz! I think setting off the reds and blues will look nice in that layout.

  3. It has a very happy look! I do this all the time- I start making a bunch of blocks and then when I'm about a third of the way done, I figure out what I should have been doing - oh well, I just make it work - Liz & Kate gave you some good suggestions - I'm sure it will turn out fabulous!

  4. It's going to be beautiful, whichever way you go! I like Liz's suggestion, though. The reds and blues do seem to pop. Best of luck with your progress this week! :)
