The school year is drawing to a close.

Remember these fabrics?

My Kindergarten Teacher Quilt is coming together nicely.

I am just a bit stumped on the placement of colors:
There are dark blue, light blue, green, brown, red (with brown accents), and red (with cream accents).

My issue is I don't want any to that match to share a point - if that makes sense. In my placement above, two of the same red are sharing a point. Also, I need the colors to be well scattered about.

I've found that by taking a picture, I get a little better perspective.

Also - I'm missing the signature for one of the dark blues. He lives down the street and I can get it tonight. For this exercise, I put paper under it to get a better feel for the color.

Any suggestions?

Gorgeous quilt!

I have two suggestions...1. Switch Colton and Blaine's patches. It will even out where the reds are falling. 2. Switch Branden and Gina's patches. This will fix the problem with 2 like materials touching.

I've found that taking a photo helps a ton with the overall perspective, too.

I'm not a quilter, but this seemed like a puzzle so I brought it into photoshop to play with it.

I think you can fix the problem if you move Emma to Tyler's spot, Tyler to Gina, and Gina to Emma ...

I love how creative everyone is with helping you solve the dilemma!

The quilt is just really awesome.

Thanks for all the feedback! - I ended up picking them all up and starting over - twice!

Now, I'm pretty pleased with the result.
