Design floor?

I am working on the Perfect Ten quilt pattern using Martinique fabric. The cutting was easy enough, but laying out the quilt has been exhausting! The instructions said use a design wall. HA! That translates to the living room floor. I had help from my friend Emily making sure all the colours were evenly spread and the quilt wasn't too 'red'. We arranged blocks, moved blocks, walked around the quilt and then moved blocks again.

Even though arranging blocks can be exhausting, I do love the process of a quilt coming together. The generic pattern can be changed by fabric choice, arrangement of the blocks and it becomes distinct and 'yours'.
Now I have to piece the blocks together, add the borders and it will be another quilt down. This is now quilt no. 3.
