Pattern: Patchwork BOM by Fat Quarter Shop
Fabrics: From my stash

Difficulty rating: ★★★
How does one decide on a layout? I have finished all 12 months of the Fat Quarter Shop Patchwork BOM and now have to figure out how to sew the blocks together. The original pattern only had 6 sets of blocks, but since I was doing a Rainbow quilt, I made a seventh set each month. Which now gives me four extra blocks to decide what to do with. But, the bigger decision, which layout do I want? I like the one with them in month order, but that makes it much wider than the length. I really like the one with the blocks in rainbow color order, but I’m trying to decide if I need to stretch myself and go with the random color design. I have realized that “scrappy” isn’t what I prefer, I like order. But….. thus the decisions, decisions that this is titled. What do you think? Which one do you like? Oops, I see some similar blocks next to each other on the scrappy one, need to mix a few up. Darn it! Just spotted one block sewn wrong. Guess I now have to decide if I pick it out and re-sew it. Do you see that one? I will ponder that decision and decide tomorrow.
