The red set was difficult for me to lay out. First, there weren't enough to complete a toddler quilt so I added the remaining yellow blocks. I'd previously used many of the yellows so these are gold to brown.

Here are four possible layouts I considered. They all use the exact same blocks. No leftovers. I find it particularly interesting how block placement affects the vibrancy of the quilt.

- Top left: The light peach blocks are dispersed and this quilt is too dark for me.
- Top right: Putting the peach blocks in the lower right divides the top into dark on top, light on bottom. No spark or transition.
- Lower left: I like the peach X and the way the yellows seem minimized. This arrangement was my second choice.
- Lower right: The peach diamond is too light for the center of this top but gave me the idea for the final arrangement.
Enjoy the day, Ann
