Four more and a LAYOUT Plan

The final four blocks have been sewn, but not without an oops.  It would seem that after 26 blocks, I would have been able to make them right every time.  However, two halves ended up looking like this:

So I ripped them apart and sewed them again. Then I had the last four blocks completed. 

I took the blocks to Mom's (I go daily to check on her and help her with any needs she may have.) 
There I did the layout in her nice living room floor.  I am posting two photos as neither one is all that great. Mom's low ceilings don't allow me to stand on something to get a more straight on picture. 

I could have fussed with it a lot more, but I realized that I would never get it "perfect." Mom and I both like this layout so I am calling it good.  I stacked and marked the rows.  Hopefully I will get it in this configuration when I sew it together.

And then there were 26!

  After prepping the final strips - cutting them to size - I started sewing more blocks.   I got four made in record time.

These are more "mixed up" blocks. The final ones will be two color blocks. But there are only four more to go. 
This stack has 26 completed blocks in it.

  I am thinking I will take them to Mom's and use her big living room hardwood floor to decide on the layout. If I get in gear in the morning, I can have them all done and ready to take over.  That way I can get them laid out and take a photo to finalize the layout. A big plus is that Mom can be involved, even if all she does is watch.  A second set of eyes is always helpful. 

I am excited to get this top together and see how it looks.
