One of These Halves Is Not Like The Other


Here is a pic of my Carolina Crossroads so far this AM. The top half is my design, adding in the sashing strips of the accent color, black. The bottom right "half" is the original pattern. I like the top left better, so I'm not necessarily asking for advice. Just curious as to the different opinions out there. Do you like the original (bottom right) or the detour (top left)? Let me know!

Oh wow! I love the sashing. Really pops the quilt. :)

Both layouts are great, but I do prefer the top left with the sashing...gives it more definition I think.

I like the top one too. I think it accentuates the stars more. I was sgoing to put nine patche instead of the plain light squares in the centers of my step seven. Maybe I'll get it done this weekend and post a pic on my blog.

I prefer the top left. The sashing really makes the quilt have some ZING!

Tamara said...

The top left section with the sashing really makes the blocks stand out. So I agree with the others top left has it in the bag.

Top one MUCH, MUCH better! After seeing the finished product, I decided to put mine aside (I only have 1 1/2 clues finished) as I really don't care much for it. You are making me rethink this....but what color sashing with a pink/brown/nuetral quilt.....

I like the top left also. Too bad I have mine almost 1/4 put together.

I love the "detour" quilt design! The sashing really adds alot to the overall look. While I have been watching the progression of the mystery I wanted to wait to see what it looked like before I started yet **another** project.

After seeing your detour it gives me more of a reason to make the design. . . .if only in order to see what else could be done to make it mine.

Ooh, la, la! Love the black sashing!!! Great addition to the design!

Eileen said...

I really like the black bands through that you put in. Hadn't seen a picture of this completed so this is really good.

Like Kim, always have to make it your own.

I'm partial to the detour--that sashing is awesome! I love black as an accent, and you did a terrific job!

Ila said...

OMG! It's fabulous!

I like them both very much, with yours you see mnore the work you have done as you see all the blocks.
