Design Opportunity

Not a lot of quilting going on over the past week - we spent the weekend visiting our kids in Portland.  Always a lot of fun - the grand-kids are growing so fast and it is such a sweet thing to be able to be a part of their growing up years!  Jovi is so much more comfortable with us now and is so entertaining - "I did it!" is her thing, and I really got a kick out of hearing her say this.  I hope she always feel such a sense of accomplishment when she masters the many skills ahead of her to learn!  It is wonderful to see all of them learning new things and becoming such unique personalities - like they say, if I knew being a grandparent was this much fun I'd have done it first!

On to quilting. I have a decision to make with my March quilt in progress and hope to get some help!



 I worked some more on the blocks for this months project.  Here are the first 4 -
And here is the next set of four combined with them:

Sorry for the bad lighting... Do you see where I got a triangle turned wrong?  I fixed it and started working on the next set.  As I looked at the pieces as I laid them out I realized that I have started putting my blocks together wrong!  So, now I have a decision to make.  Do I take apart the blocks I already made, or do I decided this is a design opportunity and make the quilt with the blocks as they are and make the rest the same?  

I got busy with EQ7 and made a quilt with the blocks both ways.  What do you think?  This is how it will look the way I am currently making the blocks:
And this is the way it is supposed to look:
I'm leaning toward one of them, but I'm not telling yet!  Leave a comment and tell me which one you like best!

Go with the "not ripping this out" version. It's not a mistake. It's a new design element!

Barbara Wood said...

The way you are doing it looks great to me. No WAY I'd rip them out when it looks so good!

I'm with the girls above...I like the look of one with the "mistakes". Which by the way I would call creative license!!

Nancy said...

I agree with the rest of the girls. Leave it

Kathy Kinsella said...

Stay with the way you have started ... I like it,

Stephanie Hateley said...

I'm with the others, I prefer the so called 'mistake', not a mistake at all, looks much more striking to me. Going to be a gorgeous quilt

Phyllis Pharis said...

I have to agree--I like the top one!
