When I'm given the task of arranging blocks at random, I find it difficult. I over think the whole process.girl quilt with a large piece of felt to hold the blocks on) And about every day I rearrange the pieces a bit trying to find an arrangement that I'm satisfied with. It's like the game of musical chairs. Eventually the music will stop and I'll need to sew them together Hopefully the final arrangement will be suitable. Taking pictures of the arrangements really helps, though. Your eye seems to take in the whole picture better when the overall size is smaller. If anyone has a feeling on the block placement I'd welcome the input - at least until the music stops!
