I had my sister pick a number didn't feel like being tech savy tonight. Here are two design that I drew out in EQ incorporating multiple ideas from all your responses.Of course my ladies are on point but I couldn't get the design to rotate them. I was thinking about a larger top and bottom border and narrower sides. Spent Saturday looking for muslin, I had to go buy some more today after work, couldn't seem to find mine anywhere (looked in every box in the sewing room, in the process I did some organizing......side tracked.......again). I also found some more antique quilt tops that I forgot I had.
I did change the orientation of the fans.
