    Default Confused..

    Hi

    I have stared at my color placement and tried so many variations that I feel totally lost at the moment.

    Should I have a extra grey strip close to the dark framing border before the squares or
    should the grey triangles go directly close to the dark framing border ?

    Should I have the grey fabric repeat it self in the square section or should I have some other combination of color to extend the squares down so the quilt will be squarish ?

    My head is spinning.

    What is your thoughts ?

    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Beautiful work! I personally prefer the first photo without the extra strip. I think it maintains the motion and frames the star in an on-point continuous way.

    Beautiful top so far. I personally like the photo on the right. I guess you'll get more votes, that will help you decide.

    Both layouts look ok, but I prefer the first pic on the left.

    I agree about the photo on the left being the best choice. Beautiful either way though.

    I prefer the picture on the left....leaving off the extra gray strip makes everything look more cohesive.

    Thank you all for your input!

    It is consensus. I am leaving out the extra grey strip.
