playtime = decisions


OK ... I've had hours of mindless fun making fabric & now comes the hard part.

What to do with all of these little gems?  

After countless arrangements on my design wall I've narrowed my choices
down to the following & I'm wondering if any of them catch your eye.

what a fun project! My favorite is the first choice you narrowed down, where the gems are set on point. Love the name little gems for this!

I love the one with the black stripes. It looks stunning. I am having fun creating these small squares. I will have to search for some brighter pieces. Yours look great.

I like the third one.

Jan said...

I like the first and the third settings, especially the third one with the stripes connecting the gems.

Michele said...

Love the third. So artsy. Your gems are jewels. They sparkle!

My vote is definitely for the one with the stripes!

beth said...

My lineup:
1. blocks on point
2. blocks with stripes going through
3. They're all great!!
Look forward to your quilt!

Oooooooooh! The one with the dark horizontal strips! Love it!

CharlotteP said...

Yes, the stripes are my favourite too - pretty, and original!

I like the stripes, but am really intrigued by some of the shadows. Maybe give a thinner gray stripe under the black strips and the lower and right hand side to give a little bit of depth.

I like on point and stripes. The stripes mostly, because I've never seen that setting before! I like the use of white with the blocks, whatever way you choose.

My favourite is the one with the black stripes. It's really eye-catching.

I like the ones set on point and the one with the lines.

I like the blocks on point best, but I also like the graphic effect with the black strips.

The diamond one looks the best but they are all lovely.

Kath said...

I like the first one. They are so effective on the white, I would not think to do that, but then you always inspire me Miss V!

The one that's set on point is very eye-catching. Your eye can choose to look at the color blocks or the white ones. The one with the horizontal lines makes your eyes follow along to see what's next. It's more creative and original in my opinion:) I guess it depends on the look you're going for. Either way, the blocks are so fun!
