Shiner was our first English Setter who taught me the value of "stopping to smell the roses" ... or in her case swimming after a duck, chasing a worn-out frisbee, or hunting down the RIGHT stick thrown in the woods.
We should all enjoy life as much as Shiner did ... so I choose to look through Shiner's View ...

I don't have a design wall ... so I use the queen size bed in my guest room to lay out my quilts. Then I stand on a bench and take a photo ... which helps me sort through the layout of the blocks. This one still needs some work ... too many white centers in top right corner. I also like to sleep on it for a night and see if it looks different the next day.
This one is REALLY busy ... I find it hard, when I wander from "my style" to know whether it really works or not. It is certainly an interesting combination ... and with none of the white space that I typically like to use ... I find the eye doesn't really have anywhere to rest.
I like the pattern and can't wait to try it with some solids!!!
Well ... off to bed. Busy day tomorrow and then some serious house hunting this weekend (and that's a whole different story ;-).
All the best
