SBS Swap Layout

Here's my layout for my Pink/Brown SBS Blocks. I designed it at work, using excel, so coloring is very basic. Please don't laugh, lol. It at least gets me headed in the right direction.

Finished size should be about 90" X 105". Huge, I know, but I like it. Of course, by the time I finish sewing it, my plans may change, but we'll deal then. So here's the scoop:
Layout the 80 blocks in an 8 X 10 setting with 1" brown sashing and pink cornerstones. Add a cream border (1" - 2") to get both dimensions divisible by 5 - possibly using pink cornerstones again. Use the signature blocks and a variety of pink fabrics to make square-in-square blocks. (I think it will work right - 3.5" finished center to 5" block- anyone got the measurement handy?). I know that not everyone sent in signature blocks. The inner border accounts for 58 blocks. Then I plan on adding a 10" brown border, using the additional signature blocks/pink fabrics/square-in-a-square blocks for cornerstones. Binding will either be brown or pink. The brown is actually a dark, dark brown, but this was the closest I could approximate.

The layout looks great! I have chosen one as well that I will share on my blog. I just started it, will you visit and let me know if it looks goofy? thanks

I too mostly use excel to plan out my quilt to see the whole design.
