A Quandary

I saved a photo of an antique crib quilt on Pinterest some time ago. when I was back in Michigan, I decided to cut pieces for it.

Since I had no idea what size the pieces were in the original, I decided to make mine with 2” finished HSTs.

I also changed my mind on the placement of the HSTs.

I threw it up on the design wall with the borders I had cut.

Eh…..not thrilled. I might like it better with wider borders. It has lost the naïveté of the original. Now I have to figure out where to go from here.

Have a great day!

    I like would one more column on the outside rows of triangles in the same color as the other column ones. Then I think your outside border will look much better.

    I like the way the half squares are laid out in the original quilt. I love the colors you are working with. Hugs,

  3. I like it, especially how you tweaked it a bit. I’ll bet it will tell you what to do, and it will be brilliant!

    I like your interpretation of the original quilt a lot…
    Thats what quilters do…we are inspired and then make it our own . Great use of the original color scheme and I also think an inner border of yellow has possibilities

    I’m thinking along the lines of “Quiltmouse”; only fold back the HSTs to get the yellow on the sides and add the pink borders to see if that helps. I feel a narrow yellow border would clutter the effect.

    I like it, but the original had the yellow before the borders which makes the HSTs stand out. Maybe add a small inner border of yellow?
