5" pre cuts

A while ago I bought a little pack of pre cuts. I think the range of fabric is called Sweetwater Reunion.
At first I thought it would make a nice little baby quilt so I just put navy and white strips around each piece and got this.
It was firstly a little small and secondly a little too sane for me.
Next I tried this:
 After asking son no. 2 what he thought, he moved a few of the panels to make the red stripe fabric fall in waves.
I do like the way he thinks!
I am not sure though, how to join it up. 
Do I extend the uneven ends with the navy fabric and then border the whole thing? 
I guess I will have to add more striped fabric to the ends so the waves follow through the design edges.
It just may have to lie on the floor for a while until I think about it some more.


  1. Wow - the difference between the first "safe" option and the third! Such color and movement. This inspires me to take more time to audition options as I go instead of plowing through with an initial plan. Glad to know I'm not the only one with a project on the floor!

  2. This looks GREAT!! I think I would continue with the stripe, just to keep them all floating. Beautiful!!

  3. Very nice! I like how your son arranged it. I would just sew strips of the fabrics which would come next (if you would go on putting blocks on) on at the uneven ends.

  4. This quilt looks great! I love your son's designs! I still think the two of you should author a book!

    I am on the home stretch to retirement ! Only 19 days of school left.

  5. I think I like your stripy version best - it looks more jumbly and jumpy, which is more my thing, I suppose. Anyway - I'm very impressed by your son's design sense and I love your work.

    (I'm planning to play with a quilty idea this weekend... perhaps...)

  6. I like the way your son thinks too! Isn't it great to get a 2nd opinion, sometimes you can just look at a quilt for soooo long you stop seeing it. I really love the movement you've got going on in this quilt.

  7. This article is interesting and useful. Thank you for sharing. And let me share an article about health that God willing will be very useful. Thank you :)
