Group 4 Block Progress

Ok so I've gotten a little more done today than I thought! LOL I've got a good number of the squares cut and some sewn for the 9 squares necessary for the Rainbow Quilt Sampler Swap group 4 (yeah I was one of the crazy ones that joined 2 groups!). Obviously I've had some help doing this. This is one of 5 cats that like to HELP me! LOL As you can see, Oreo is trying to help hold the pieces down while I get the last couple of pieces turned the right direction.
His little brother (ok so none of my cats are from the same litter, but they are my children afterall, so I call them brothers and sisters--along with the two dogs as well) on the other hand is not quite taking such an active roll in this quilt. Mater is just trying to hold the other things on the table out of the way so that I can work on this project. Of course, he would tell you, "Oreo has been sleeping right along beside me until you started laying things out. Now he's going to get the spotlight? You just wait until the next project!" And then there is the sleeping old lady who just wants me to leave her alone--although she also has to be in the same room with me while I'm working. Savannah just prefers to be asleep on the second chair in the room tucked up under the cutting table where she can sleep in the "dark".
All of this drama from my cats just to show you what the quilt square is going to look like. Now you have to realize that none of these squares have yet been pressed or sewn together (well duh, that's obvious!) But none the less, those of you that happen to drop by that are in group 4 of the quilt swap will get an idea of what that square will look like. I hope you like it--as I've got too many squares cut out now to change it! LOL I think its going to look pretty.
Option 1--as Originally planned
I thought about swapping the pinwheel to the maroon and floral print putting the white on the outside. But I kind of like it this way. But will that then be too much "creme" to everyone else's white and ____ squares?

Option 2: Ok so one of my bottom middle squares is turned wrong, but you ge the idea.

Option 3:

Option 4:

I need some opinions here--preferably from the folks in the swap. However, you know me, I take opinions from most everyone! And since I've given 4 options, I'm sure someone will come up with option 5 or 6 just to throw my brain totally out of whack! Oh wait, that really ISN'T that hard to do anymore!

So STOP lurking (at least for just today) and give me an opinion on this. I really need to know before I start sewing these squares together!

Ok, I am not the quilting expert but I like the last option 1st and the first option 2nd and then the third option. Just my opinion

I like the white in the middle...

Mama Krit said...

Wow, you did get a lot done.

Huh? You cat HELPS you sew. Yea... mine comes inside from the rain, sits on my quilting squares, shakes her whole body, then jumps away while purring as I scream at her for leaving muddy footprints on my fabric.

I really like option 3, but I'm not in the swap so what do I know?

I love your cats. Nice to meet them. Oreo is a perfect name for your black and white one. I would go for option three. Option 1 is quite dark. You should defintely have white in it. Good luck. Curious what you will choose.

Vanessa said...

I like option 1 but I do think it is too dark for the swap. How about option 3. It has just the right amount of light and dark pieces.

Kim said...

I haven't even got one done, I'm impressed! Think I'm the only one, but I like option 4 :) K
