I finally settled on making a 5x6 block layout, and after trialling a gazillion differrent arrangements, I'm happy with this one. It was unavoidable having several similar prints together because otherwise I had too much of the same colour in one place, which looked worse. I took photos of all the layouts so that I could scroll through and make a gut decision :-)
Now I could finally press the blocks so the seams of the blocks nestle... Maybe I'll get to make all the rows today!

I've finished quite a few blocks of this quilt, and am currently debating whether to go with a 5x6 layout (would need 7 more blocks) or stay at 4x5, with a few blocks left over for the backing, pillows or similar...
I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced Modern Quilting for WIP Wednesday today.

I've seen plus-quilts (sometimes called crosses instead of pluses) all over blogland and decided that this would be great pattern to showcase a bunch of Moda Wonderland fabrics I bought ages ago.
I liked one blogger's design of having one reverse plus in the pattern, to shake it up (see here http://kindaquilty.blogspot.de/2014/09/finish-it-friday-final-purge.html). Most pluses will be a wonderland print on blue background, except the one you see here on the bottom.
A couple of days after, I now have a huge pile of block components ready to sew into 30 plus-blocks.
I'm already looking forward to free-motion-quilting all this background space!
