Scrap Quilty progress

The scrap quilt started here has moved on a touch, and I can’t decide whether to make it stained glass style with clover bias or plain, with non-matching seams undisguised (because the strips are of varying widths): Annette's table topper assembled  or with the bias – not yet fixed.    There will be a narrow borderAnnette's table-topper with black bias

What do you think – with or without?

  1. I know nothing about quilting, but I love the stained glass idea.

    Tricky! The top look is softer but the bias kind of ‘pulls it together’? Probably no. 2 🙂

  3. I prefer the top one, my eye was allowed to meander across freely appreciating the flow of the individual squares. 😀

  4. Both are beautiful but I’d say my preference is with the majority–the second one. Love the colors…so calming to me.

    It’s pretty either way, but I like the window pane effect the strips give. That dark makes the colors seem even livelier. (love that rust-orange batik)

    I think the one with the bias strips is my favourite too. It has a look of a stained glass window about it.

    I prefer the one with the bias strips. To my eye, it is more ‘bien arrangée’, perhaps like its future owner…?

  10. I think I prefer the one with the bias sashing. it makes it look like window panes

  11. I vote for the un-biased one. I like how the lines of the blocks interact with each other. The strips distract me from the pattern. I think the better question is, what would your friend prefer?

    Either way, it’s a good looking quilt.


  12. I like the bottom one better, visually. More work I know but adds dimension. Just my 2 cents worth. I love it any way you finish it. Just lovely.

    What a great scrappy quilt! I like the black bias a little more, but I have this blackish faze going on just now… If you know who is receiving the quilt, their personality might give you the answer?

    I am not a quilter, but I like the top photo. That is my “un-biased” opinion. Pun intended. 😄
