Layout Options

If you have ever looked through the patterns page on my website (www.cameliaelliott.com) or my Facebook page (Camelia’s Unique Creations) you may have ran across my quilted couch.

After finishing this epic project I wanted to publish a quilt pattern with the same block in a wallhanging size as well as all bed sizes.

When placing the “couch quilt” (created with blues and yellows) next to the wallhanging (created with country French fabrics in primary colors) I was amazed at the difference.

Both projects are created with the same simple quilt block.  Isn’t the difference amazing?

A good lesson to be learned—layout your quilt in various ways to see which option you like the best.
