I have been exercising my own grey cells with Bonnie Hunter's 'Lazy Sunday'. I've made my usual half the blocks, and started to join them together.
So far so good, until I checked the pattern, and realised that I had started at the top of Bonnie's design, and only six rows wouldn't mke a balanced design. So I made my own balanced design! Not sure if I like the purple centre though.
So I moved the two rows I'd already joined together down a bit and added a row on top. Now I have four flowers in the centre. Is this better? Perhaps the clincher was that I have exactly enough blocks for this design, and I would have to make more Jacobs Ladder blocks to complete the other. Laziness will win the day!
