Well, I'm sorry to say I still haven't found the right design. I've found one I like, but I don't love it. I'm taking a step back and leaving it for a week or two. I find laying out quilt tops a bit like sampling perfume. If you try too many at once, they all mix together and nothing seems quite right. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and try again later.
In the meantime, I've started working on something I know will look great. Or at least I'm 99% sure...or maybe 98%? I've started it anyway, so it's officially a Work in Progress.

I'm not going to give away too much as I want it to be a surprise, but, I can tell you it will consist of blocks looking very similar to this one. This is a Trip Around the World block, though my quilt will be a little more scrap-tacular than the traditional Trip quilts.
Now to just sew these ten piles...and then another 31.
Hopefully this quilt top will be finished in the next week so I can show it off in all it's glory.
