Then, I wondered how it would look if I tried to achieve a more regular look, and placed the squares so that the fabric in the central strips matched, going in diagonal lines ;
|A little less randomly|
|Less randomly - from the other side|
The quilt top is composed of 120 squares, arranged 10 squares by 12. It covers the top of the queen size bed; with a 4 or 6 inch border, it should be just right for a twin or full size bed (draping a bit over the sides). I am trying to resist the urge to make more squares and make it bigger! I am also trying to decide if this quilt is "good enough" to be given to one of the people who asked me for a quilt or, if I should make a more planned quilt for them.
What do you think? Which version do you prefer?
