Ann very cleverly dealt with the fact that the blocks were not all the same size by organising them into rows and colums. The 10" blocks went into the 1st , 3rd and 5th colums and the 16 patches went into the 2nd and 4th colums with a sashing strip at the top to make them 10" in height..
Then the colums were set apart by 3 rows of the red and white 9 patch variation blocks. Ann made the 9 patch blocks positive and negative (red in the center and then cream in the center) so that they create a secondary pattern.
The sail boat blocks were also light on dark boats and dark on light boats for added contrast and interest!
All in all I'm very impressed with her various adaptions in the block designs to arive at this wonderful layout! yeah, Ann!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
PS - Someone asked about the nice quilting it was quilted by Amy Jones from See Bee It Quilting in Morgan Hill, CA. Sorry I should have included that info in the first place!
