Dona those are great ideas, I think that would be really fabulous!

I am still doing the 13 by 13 layout with a border.  I will try no to duplicate squares but look for alternative ones on my software that I have.  I will duplicate triangles.  I am going to pick out 13 pieced triangles that I like and do them in 4 different colors.

I am also thinking about doing the applique blocks into a wall hanging to match the quilt.

Dona, you are absolutely right - this is your quilt and you should do whatever appeals to you the most!  It will still be fabulous without the applique blocks - there is such a variety of blocks, that I don't think the applique will be missed at all.

You could make it a little smaller overall, and just eliminate the applique, and re-arrange the remaining blocks -- or you could keep the same number of blocks and substitute duplicates of some of your favorites -- or you could substitute some completely different blocks altogether.

What are your thoughts?

Patricia your blocks and top look amazing.  I am thinking about modifying my squares.  I really want the quilt on my bed so I am thinking about not doing the applique blocks.  I really don't like the applique with wonder under.  I know that this is my quilt and I can do what I want.  What do you think?

I-9.  Any block that I can go into the dustbin to get pieces for, has pieces that are just too small!  I really wanted to make this one in something bolder than yellow, but just seemed to need a yellow at this junction in the quilt area - nothing else seemed to work.  So yellow it is.

I-8.  This looks like the last easy one in this row.  The rest look pretty challenging.

I-7.  I row over half done   ;-)

Here is I-3.  I have I-4 and 5 done previously.  The rest in this row look a bit challenging....

Oh I dearly wish you would Dona - it's very lonely out here!  ;-)
