Gayle at Mangofeet suggested I try a half-drop layout for the seahorses. I tried it out in Photoshop and then tried it out in real life. It's a winner. And when is Gayle ever wrong? I may rename it staggering seahorses though. Oh, and I think this also means I have to make three more right facing seahorses so I can have odd number of columns.
And I finally transferred the photos from the Pacific International Quilt Festival from my phone to the computer. For me, the highlight of the show was Frances Meredith's Nearly Insane quilt. (You can follow her at the blog Faberdashery as she makes masterpiece after masterpiece.) I had Molly pose in front of her quilt to prove that we were actually there.

The postage stamp blocks are for this year and I was planning on a two by four block quilt. Now I am thinking of adding white sashing between the blocks and making it three by three. But I could also see me lose my mind and decide to make four more. But first I'll add one more block, and I'm thinking dark green...wouldn't that be appropriate.
For more lovely dark green blocks, please visit SoScrappy and the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.

I originally saw this quilt in Charlottesville...when Kristin moved there. I regretted not stealing it at the time. So if you don't hear from me for a while, you'll know that this quilt and I are on the lam. Buddy thought I said lamb...so he said yum!
