Many of you suggested the totally scrappy look and just randomly placing the blocks and John suggested of a sort of zigzag effect which I tried out, and I quite like that, but the longer I look at it, the more changes I make. I warned you, my mind just can't cope with random.
Here and there I see too many blues, or too many strawberries together or two sets of the same HST in a row or column, you get the picture?
I've reshuffled it twice already! Now I'm toying with a new idea for the lay out. This morning while having a root through the fabric and bedding rails in the Hospice shop next door I came accross these two sheets. The perfect shade of blue to use as a back for Strawberry Lemonade.
At this price for two brand new King size flat bed sheets I wasn't going to say no! They are not 100% cotton, but thats ok with me as it was just for the back. This second photo is a truer colour than the first one.
Now however I have other ideas, what if I were to remove a whole row and put in a border between the HSTs and the Bento Boxes, then another around the outside of the whole thing. The reason I suggest removing a row is because my batting is wide enough to accept borders, but sadly not long enough and as it is also from next door it's an odd weight which I can't garuntee to match in order to extend it. I'm off to play some more, I have enough of the blue stuff to make a skirt if I can get the top to just the right size.
