Easily Distracted




I had the best intentions of having a pile of half-square triangles made by now. I got as far as printing my template papers out. But, while I was waiting for them to print, I opened my EQ software to play with setting ideas for the OP quilt. Twenty-something quilt variations later, I think I have it narrowed down to one of three possibilities.


I'm not sure I have enough fabric on hand for any of them, so actual sewing will likely have to wait until I can make it to the fabric store. These are the options I am considering, in no particular order. What do you think? Does any one in particular speak to you?

i loke the pinkie purplie sashing best. the top picture is pretty, but the white setting triangles seem a bit stark. is there some actual print or dash of color in the white you'd use for that layout? in the bottom one the green and yellow combination seem to overwhelm your GREAT blocks. so definitely the pink/purple thing!

i would go with the middle one all the way! having the tiny yellow background triangles peeking out thru the latice gives the quilt dimention.
nice job!

I am with the second choice too - not sure I like the green sashing in either #1 or #3 - but #3 is quite cheerful looking and could be a favorite if with the right green. Don't you just love EQ6 - I can spend hours playing around with quilt layouts.

I like the first one with the lime green sashing & white setting triangles. It sizzles!!

You know I'm all about contrast and high-energy color. I adore the first one. The green on the white just smiles.

Clearly, it depends on what mood you want to project. I like the clean white/green, but I never liked cream as well as white anyway.
