12 Blocks

I can not believe it, but I have the 12 HUGE (18") blocks made for the commission quilt. That is right, I sat last night and sewed my brains out. I am very happy with the blocks.  I will be putting 4" sashings between the rows. 


I rearranged the layout when I realized that it was not quite "right."
Now that I realize also that the "purple-red" blocks look more red than purple, I am thinking of changing the sashings also. 
Would  you like what is behind door # 1?

Or Door # 2?
Or would you make a suggestion for yet something else?  (I am trying to limit this to fabrics in my stash.) 
I have a nice green (see last post) that is also an option.  I am sure I will be laying out the squares and the fabrics for auditions sometime tonight or this weekend. 

I am looking forward to your suggestions. 
Adding Audition pictures:


All blue


Blue and Green

My favorite is door #1. I think the colors pop just a little bit more :)

Tangos Treasures said...

I'm sticking with door #1

One vote for door #2! (But, really, I don't think you can go wrong either way)

Now with the blocks on the fabric I think the all blue. I think the green fabric sashing would wash out the green in the block. The yellow might add a totally different dimension to your quilt.

um...I'll take door number 2.you have so much going on in the blocks that the same color sashing tones it down...

I too like #2. Beautiful design as always.

Rhonda said...

I like "Door #1" best.

Donna said...

Door #2 - I love the blue.

Pat said...

Oh, dear....don't make me choose...I like them both about equally. :)

Door 1 pops better. Don't like the green. Have you tried mixing the blue around in both directions?
