Design Wall Monday #20
I finished the Lil' Twister pinwheel quilt top that I was working on last week, and I do love it! I predict that I will make more quilts using this technique because it's just fun! I could see myself sewing together the first step, then cutting the pinwheels and putting all the pieces in a kit to sew at a retreat.
Then I worked on ideas for my Capricorn stitcheries quilt top.
I love the effect of the half chain blocks and want to make the border with them. But I don't want the border to take away from the stitchery blocks that are the focus of this quilt.
This is option #1 with the solid red blocks between the half chain blocks. I think it's a little "heavy". Plain white blocks are a little boring. And I didn't like the flying geese idea either.
This is version #2 with the alternating half chain blocks pointing in.
This is version #3 with the alternating half chain blocks pointing out.
Do you have a favorite?
Or a recommendation for another version?
