You know that thing I do when I ask for all of your opinions and then I just do whatever I want instead? I did it again.
While you all thoughtfully weighed in on which block arrangement I should do I just went with #3. I was worried that all the tiny bits in the corners would be lost in option #1.
It's just 19" square, backed with a stretchy terry kind of fabric I got ages ago for who knows what. I did some simple stitch in the ditch quilting. It made a cute design on the back.
And now for the dreaded binding. I still haven't stitched down the binding on the Lotus quilt. I'm kind of mad at it still.
