The first layout

Each strip set cuts into 8 HSTs and it was difficult keeping them far enough apart on the first layout of this quilt. The dark strips go in the center of a 4 set and are set vertically and the light strips go in the middle orientation and are set horizontally all in an on-point layout. WHEW! After getting this layout up on the board I realized that I can only accommodate 1/2 the quilt at a time. I've had to rethink how I am going to manage this designing challenge and spent yesterday afternoon cutting more strip sets and getting the design wall back into their 8 sets to start again with a better mix of the HSTs. This is to make sure the HST colour sets are not clumped on each side of the quilt but distributed throughout.
Head over to Vicki's to see what everyone else has accomplished.
