Well after I posted the photo of this quilt just stuck on the design wall, the comments about the positioning of the yellow squares flooded in. And I didn't even see it till it was pointed out to me! I showed it to Daz and after 5 minutes of staring at it, he's like "Its FINE!" Think he just wanted to get back to staring at the cricket on telly. Hmmmmm, then I took in to Mothers Group today to show the girls and again, they looked at it and didn't notice anything odd about the placement of the yellow squares. Must be quilters eyes that only see these things.
So the above photo is how it is looking, I am going to add a 2 inch border of yellow which will hopefully balance it out. I didn't have any more of the yellow squares to add to it. I did ponder over unpicking it all and repositioning it to something like below which may of worked as I had one extra cat panal to replace the yellow one once it was moved. But, all that unpicking. Not that I'm scared of bonding with my unpicker, I just wanted this to be a quick and simple whip up cot quilt. I don't think the person it is for would notice the placement of the yellow. Thats what I am hoping. So I think I will chalk this one up to better layout planning next time Helen, don't be so eager to start sewing as soon as you have cut the squares, you can pause you know. I am going to have some fun doing some meandering stippling with some stars or hearts, hopefully it won't look that bad.
