Second Breast Cancer Quilt Layout

The first quilt top has been sewn together, I just need to get a photo for you when it's hanging vertically.  This second set of blocks for the second quilt top had a bunch of dark fuchsia blocks.  When I tried to add them in randomly, your eye was drawn to them.  Also, there were so many of them that it was difficult to space them out.  

Then, it came to me.  Count them out and see if you can outline the rest in the dark fuchsia blocks.  It worked, I had just enough to become the outer part (not border) of the quilt.  A few extras are strategically placed elsewhere on the quilt.  I laid it out on a quilt backing while I sew the blocks up.  

There are some blocks that just break your heart and others that give such hope. The one block that touched my heart the most on this quilt is below the layout photo. 

Thanks for stopping by!
