Ideas anyone? I want to make an orange and turquoise quilt. Started doing windmills and hate it. Any suggestions most welcome. I adore the fabrics, but the block is not working for me.

i've sewn 12 blocks now. They're each 7 and a half inches square and I want to make it a single or double bed size.
And to give myself a deadline, I told the quilter today that I'll deliver two quilts to her in 6 weeks, when I pick up the quilt she's quilting for me now.
She's a new quilter for me, and you can book yourself into her schedule weeks ahead - sounds good!
It gives me a deadline to work towards too. Always good.

I love this #xplusalong so much I've started a new version. This time 7 inches. This is a true scrap quilt. Lots of the pieces are just 2". This block is 90% from a scrap pack I received from a fellow instagram quilter last week. I'm trying for soft, muted tones.
Block 7 includes two of the fabrics someone gave me in a swap last week. Already put to good use! Now that I've photographed the block, I see that I need to centre the 'charity'. Otherwise, I think this is my favourite block so far. I really concentrated on using the reds that I love most, in particular.

I'm getting there with this #Ialmostgaveupforever #finishit2013 The border of wedges are the off cuts from the wedges in the centre. I wanted to use every last tiny scrap of this #artgalleryfabrics jelly roll
