I decided to go with 2 lap-sized quilts (5x7 blocks, so 50"x70") instead of one massive quilt, and I finished up one top this weekend. I tried not worry too much about placing the blocks "nicely randomly". I had two each of 20 different blocks, so I put them in order in a stack (1-20, and 1-20 again), and then sewed them in pairs (2 pairs, put one block aside, 2 more pairs, put another block aside, etc.). Then I joined the 2 pairs for each row, and then added on the singles (for 5 blocks in each row). Each time, I didn't pay too much attention to which way I sewed them, just that I tried to not have the same fabric touch, which wasn't always possible. When I had my rows done, I laid those out on the floor and tried for the best layout then. I'm sure I could have done better if I'd taken more time, but I was TRYING to let go of my perfectionist tendencies. It was really good exercise, because that letting go is hard!!
Wait - what's up with the little feet?? Who's that hiding behind my quilt? :-)
