Q&A with Amy Ellis

mimis quilts asked:
love this pillow. Did you just absolutely randomly put the HSTs together or is there some method to this design? I am doing a king size quilt of HSTs with the hopes to have the final design something like this. So far I have some pinwheel units and a couple of rows of straight set HSTs. Love some feedback.
Amy Ellis answered:
Thanks! I laid out the entire top which was simple to do at 21"- in your case I might layout a few random rows and sew them up, then decide on which rows go where. Have fun!
