Shadows, Clouds, Squircles and a Duet - Layout Options for thr Round the Year Quilt

My back is still bothering me - so I have not been doing any piecing or quilting for over 5 weeks now! Hence I decided to delay Block 5 of the quilt to October 15th and do some designing and calculations instead.
So this fortnight is being used to post layout options (with complete fabric requirements for each ) for the block of the month quilt. Two options are already up, and one on the way. This is the `Shadows' option for the Dusk version.
Here are the `Clouds' for the Rainbow Quilt.
The details for these options are posted on my blog.
And what then are squircles? You need to see this post to find out!
But I will not leave you without sharing with you one more picture...the Round the Year Quilt made in two colours,

As you can see, I have been trying out various borders on this option, inspired by the original Camelot quilt. I  am tentatively naming this two-colour option  Duet, unless you can suggest something more apt?
And I do urgently need some more testers for the quilt blocks and would be grateful to anyone who volunteers! Thanks in advance.

  1. Wow mind boggling options! They're all so vibrant! Thanks! It'll guide me in the final making of my sampler quilt! I've put it aside for the time being. Been travelling a lot and now busy with the DQMeet 'Homework'
