Decisions, decisons. Since I decided I didn't like the gold background of the first attempt, I've redone the blocks with a scrappier background. It's definitely better. But now for the dilemma. Which setting to use. I really like this jewel box setting and it works well with the Christmas fabrics. I could definitely see this as a full size bed quilt. But then, same with the other setting....oh, what to do, what to do. I think I'll keep making more pieces and put both samples up together on the wall and hopefully, by then, I'll be able to make up my mind.
Meanwhile, if you're reading this and have a preference, please let me know. Leave me a comment on which one you think would make a better setting.
