A Finish……

I finished another Christmas Gift!!!
AND
I finished it with your help!
About a month ago, I asked for some advice on the layout of this quilt.
Should I use layout number one?

Number two?

Or number three?

I had many responses and you all had your opinions, the majority of you choose Number One
BUT
A number of girls had a different idea for me…….
Messy Karen
Call Me Crazy
And
Brenda
SUGGESTED I rotate the blocks to look like flowers.
And by golly
I LIKED IT!!
So…
That is what I did!



Thanks everyone for all your help!!!
Happy Sewing!
