Design Wall Monday October 16, 2011

I finished up my rainbow of crumb blocks this weekend! Most of them have been made along the way during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Now I just have to decide how to put them together. 
  Option 1 is a simple grid. 
Option 2 is an alternating grid.  I would fill in with half blocks along the edges, making the quilt a bit wider.  That might inspire me to add a row of brown blocks to the bottom and maybe even a row of black to the top, though that might be too dark compared to the rest of the quilt. 
So what do you think, Option 1 or Option 2?

I like Option 2 - and OO OO did you just let slip that next month is brown by any chance? I'll be watching..... ha ha

I like the fun look of option 2. It plays well with the bright, happy blocks.

Ellen said...

I have trouble visualizing but I like option 2 and maybe use the multi-colour crumb blocks as a border to make it wider and longer.

I like them both but probably like the "off set" option 2 a little bit more. And I have a great idea for the border... "Rainbow Scrap Challenge" using the UnRuly letters would be perfect!

They look great. Wish I had thought to do this. I like option 1.

Brita said...

Option 2, definitely. Altho since it mean more work, not just sewing the rows together, Option 1 is nice too :-D

I like the alternating grid! I'll need to make on like that with my crumbs! Thanks for the inspiration...

I like Option 2, just for the interest factor.

Amy said...

Bright and cheery! Option 1 is my favorite.

Number 2!

I like Option 1 the best, as it allows the colours to speak for themselves without the design being distracting.

Option 1 lets my eyes rest. Option 2 keeps my eyes jumping all over. Kind of depends on how you want to use the quilt. Fun use of scraps!!

Michelle said...

I think I like Option 1 best.

LuAnn said...

I like option 2. I like the string blocks you used in the post before. Wish I had done a block or two for each month instead of trying to do a whole project each time....then I wouldn't have been a Scrap Challenge drop out. I still love seeing what everyone is doing.

I really like Option 2 - it's just that little bit more interesting!

I know at least one person who's sure that next month will be brown!
