    Question Opinions please!!

    I got myself off the couch and decided to get to work on my hubby's birthday quilt. Of course his birthday is Thursday and this is a stupid busy week but that's ok.

    One thing that has had me stumped a bit is whether my pattern is going to cut up my large directional print too much. I went ahead today and decided to make a test row.

    What do you think? My other option is just to leave the VW rows without arrows. I'm leaning toward thinking the cars are not as cut up as I thought they would be after all. My table can't fit all the pieces of the row side by side, but there is also an 8x11" piece to add to the very end of the row where the black arrow dots fade out.

    Thanks!

    I think the cars look fine with the arrow, they aren't as big as I thought originally. One thing to watch for though - it looks like they aren't sewn, so no so terrible, but your next to last arrow piece, the cars are upside down. All the rest are the right way.
    K is for Karen .....................Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    I noticed that in my photo too Karen! LOL Definitely something I will have to watch for! The fronts of the VW Bus will be less problematic than the cars as the print is smaller and while there is an up and a down, the bus print is face on so left to right won't be problematic.

    I think the arrows look great with the cars.

    I'm really liking this!! Anxious, now, to see it completed.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    I guess I better get cutting more fabric eh? I got all the fabrics pressed already. And CBC seems to be wanting to help me out as they've decided not to make the link for the livestream of Canada's current wheelchair basketball game live...even though the link is there. GRRRRRR! LOL

    Thanks for the help ladies! I'm glad I made a test row!
