Top Done

This is my Portland quilt as that is where the fabrics were bought. When I put the top together keeping the orange pieces on the border as far as possible as they were so dominant I still felt I could balance it better by resewing one block. Can you see it??
Version One

Version Two

With final border added

The changed block is the middle bottom one; changing it meant the other pieces were balanced with equivalent fabrics diagonally across.
I like the finished quilt more than I thought I would. The asymmetry of it seems a bit Japanese to me and I'm pleased I chose some of my nicer fabrics. In the past I've tended to choose less favoured fabric for workshop quilts but I am now set on using it up!
