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.

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

  6. 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.

  11. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

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

  19. 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!

  28. 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.

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

  35. 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!!

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

  37. 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.

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

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

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