The layout is done.
I’m pretty happy with it; there’s no obvious repetition or awkward adjacencies, no dark or light ‘blobs’ in the layout. I think the only thing I’ll change is the amount of white space around the club logo.
I’m going to make a 1½” border, placed 1″ inside the outer edge of the panel, and I’ll use the blue/white chevron fabric to echo the blue and white chevron in the logo. I think that should reduce the impact of all that white. The problem is that I can only make the logo A4 (approx. 8 x 11.5″) in size, because that’s the largest I can print out the transfer. Since the white panel is 18″ square, it does look a bit lonely!
Now I can get motoring with the assembly. I don’t chain piece; it’s too important to keep things in the correct position with these quilts, and my memory’s so bad I can’t just remember where things go, but I’ll crack on pretty fast, since it’s just straight lines and blocks assembled into strips.
Right, positions, everyone…
