In the first layout I had colors scattered around and it was just too jumbled for me. So I then started grouping the blocks by colors. I was happy with this layout so I started pinning. I tacked each piece down with a straight pin. This was just to hold it's place. When I started sewing I would line it up near the other blocks to be straight. I chose to sew around each block and then continue on to the next without breaking my thread. That must be the lazy(or efficient) quilter in me. :)
We are planning to hang this one on the lime green wall in our bedroom. I snap a picture as soon as that happens.
