Decision time........

Finally I'm getting back to this one.  You can see I used a combination of 2 of my choices out of all of the ones I tried.
The plain squares are alternating with the smaller bordered squares in all places but one.  I was going to have to make one more of the larger blocks and I thought, no, I'm done with this one.  I put a plain square in place of one of the large pieced squares and now I'm ready to sew it together.  It is only going to be about 42" x 48" so I think some baby is going to get this one.

I had a finishing class yesterday and this last 8 blocks were made for this one and the layout determined.  My art quilters will see this one Monday because it is one from that group that is making it.

What an expressive pattern! I like the irregularities in the overall arrangement. They make me look closer and find a pattern. And I just love the blue quilt. So simple and strong!

I like the design option that you chose! The sashing/background fabric was a great choice and the blend of the piece and plain blocks alternating adds more interest.

I love them both but the class quilt is particularly appealing to me. It stirs something in my memory but I can't quite reach the memory.

I like the spiral fabric in that quilt. It's very lively. And I like the colors and bars in thepop second one too.

I love that black and white swirl print! I think that was a good choice. And I love that bottom quilt. Great pattern and colors.

The first one looks a lot better viewed from a distance. I think you made the right choice. I love that last one. My mind is whirring with all the possibilities with that pattern. Your work is always inspirational.

Both quilts are beautiful. I like the swirl you ended up with for the top quilt. It was one of my favorites.

Some baby is going to love it! Sometimes a quilt just tells us when it is finished. I love the blue one too. So many possibilities. I am storing it at the back of my mind for future use.

They both look great, Wanda.

What a lucky baby! I love how you're setting those blocks with the black and white circle fabric. Absolutely yummy!
The blue quilt is stunning.

I love the black and white swirls in the first quilt. What a fun quilt! I enjoy reading your blog and seeing what you've been up to.

Is that last one a Blue Underground pattern? I love it!

Miki Willa said...

I love the design decision you made. That is the fabric I voted for. I also like the second quilt. Very interesting pattern.

You made the perfect choice with the black spiral print! The blocks look like they are floating. Amazing.

Hi Wanda,
Hope you don't hypnotize yourself sewing the black and white swirly print! Lookin good!

The blue quilt layout is attractive. If I don't have that pattern I think I need it!

These are all wonderful. I agree with Eva about your eye traveling around that swirl quilt now ... very clever arrangement. Love the blue one too. I always enjoy seeing a relatively simple block become a stand out quilt!

Julia said...
