bee inspired quilt

I put together my quilt blocks from our bee inspired quilting bee, and I am having some serious doubts about my choice of layout, I kinda wish I would've used some sashing. Oh well, I don't ever redo, so hopefully I'll like it more once it's quilted and bound.

I think it is perfectly lovely!!!

I really like it w/out sashing - I like how the blocks seem to point at each other, like following a maze.

Amy said...

I love it! It has a very vintagey feel to it. Absolutely wonderful without the sashing.

Julie said...

I think it is perfect! I love it!! But them I "heart" flying geese.
I wouldn't change a thing even if you were someone to redo things.
thanks for sharing such a lovely quilt

Glad I had a chance to contribute to it :D

It looks good without the sashing! I know how that goes though thinking you should of done something else once youve already pieced the whole thing together.

It looks lovely! I bet it looks nice close up with all those cute wee prints.

Natalie said...

Oh I totally LOVE the way it turned out. I think it looks like a maze with arrows telling you were to go next. :)

It is lovely the way it is! No sashing needed!!
You did so well

No way, this quilt has such movement, I love it.

If it was mine (and I know full well it's not) I would add another border with more triangles on blue. That's mostly because I'm not generally a border person so that dotted border jumps out at me.

Paula said...

I LOVE it!! I think it's perfect without the sashing. Great job!!!

Joyce said...

Well if you don't like it you can always send it here, I think its just gorgeous the way it is! Well done on finishing!

Sidney said...

I concur with everyone else: it's simply smashing just the way it is.

Cristin said...

Nah, I think it looks fabulous without sashing! Go with it... you may just love it when its all done!

Natasha said...

ooooh I like it! I have been getting bored of seeing everything sashed recently. It is fun to see the different patterns the blocks make next to each other.

It looks beautiful! I don't think it needs any sashing. When I use sashing it is usually to frame a block. Yours looks like little fishies swimming around in a wintery pond.

I love it! I love the carefree feel to it; the lack of perfect order is exactly what I love.

Foster Momma said...

I think it's great! I tend to shy away from triangles because my flying geese usually end up having a cut off beaks. Good job! It looks great!

linda said...

I like it! It's fun and scrappy. I hope you end up liking it too!

Marit said...

I love it as it is! The blue solid really binds it together! So many lovely prints and colors, so sweet and fun twist on traditional blocks! Great quilt!

Julie said...

It looks great with or without sashing!

pratima said...

I like the randomness of it. It looks so lovely and soft! Love the border too :)

Micki said...

I love it exactly that way it is without the sashing. It is so pretty!

The Calico Cat said...

I like it, especially where the like sized geese meet up!

NiCoLe said...

I really love the layout. I agree with Cheryl though. I would love to see another border with flying geese. I think it would really add something to an already great quilt.

I wouldn't kick that quilt out of bed for eating crackers...

Stephanie said...

Oh my word. I think this is my favorite Bee quilt ever. It's just stunning! I love the pale blue background color you chose.

Mickie said...

I like this quilt, the light blue make it very soothing and comforting. I think it is great!

iknitipurl said...

I think it's look great.

Valerie said...

Nettie, this one is SO cool! It reminds me of one of those blankets little kids drive cars on. It is like a maze, so creative!!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

no! I love how the background floats all the fabrics and pieces of the blocks.

Lilla Marilla said...

Oh, I think it is lovely as it is!

Anonymous said...

I think the trouble is that there is not that much contrast in it, too many cream colored prints were used, and the whole pattern has been lost. Perhaps you wanted a quilt that was more subdued but I think contrast can really make or break a good quilt pattern. Just my two cents...no harm intended.

Deanna said...

looks wonderful!

Pat said...

I especially like all the pretty fabrics that flow throughout your quilt. Simply lovely, dear.

Lucy Love Quilts said...

I love the layout! Very nice, you've inspired me to do something with all my left over scrap triangles

Stacy (S.E.W.Butterfly) said...

Sashing would have been nice; and, the current layout is great! Either, or your quilt top is fabulous!
