Zigs Pinwheels Quilt plus Moda Wee Play Today I am looking for feedback. You don’t need to be a quilter. You don’t need to an expert. You just need to have an opinion and the ability to type. πŸ™‚

I have been planning a Ziggy’s Pinwheels Quilt and I want to do it with Moda’s Wee Play collection. (ok ok, there is some peas and carrots in there too, just in case Charlie is reading :P) What I need YOUR help with is the color layout.

Have a look at the following four blocks and please vote in the comments.Β  I’d also like your opinion on the sashing. Soooooo here goes……

Thanks for leaving your vote for the blocks, and the sashing color you think would be best. I’m looking forward to hearing all your opinions!!

On Friday December 18 the author added:

PS. Looks like we’re getting a lot of different opinions now! I’ll keep the voting open until Saturday at midnight. Make sure to come back on Sunday to find out:
A)The winning block,
B) What I’m going to do with this quilt kit πŸ™‚ and…..
C) HOW IT AFFECTS YOU!!!

  2. FUN, FUN!! Love the colors! Block #2 with the light sashing would be my first choice, especially with that border. Soooo cute! It’s hard to pick.

  3. Block 1 with green sashing!
    (Block 2 looks nice color-wise, but I think the values are too close together and the scale of the two main fabrics are too similar. Blocks 3 & 4 both make my eyes hurt!)

    LOVE the border fabric!

  4. I think that block 4 shows the pinwheels off the best. I would use sashing 3(red) or 4(orange). I think the red sashing would bring out the pinwheels the best but if you want to use a lot of the different colors the orange would work well too.

    LOVE the stripes for the border!

  5. Block 1 and Block 2 would do it for me with a green sashing. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  6. I vote for block 2 with orange sashing as my first choice or block 1 with green sashing as my second.

    I’m not really fond of that lighter fabric at all.

  7. Oh, they are all lovely Bradie! I vote for Block 1 with green sashing and the stripey border fabric!

  8. My favourite is Block 4 and with block 4 I would choose the orange sashing. Second choice would be Block 2 and then I think the strippy sashing. Didn’t get as far as borders, that’s toomuch for my brain right now

  11. Block 1 with green sashing. If you’re going to do an inner border, I’d use the white. Can’t wait to see it!

  17. I like block 4 as well.
    Orange sashing to accent all the other colors.
    Border fabric is awesome to tie all the colors together.

  21. I love Block 1 with the green sashing. My second choice would be Block 2. But I am very new to quilting, only about a month now. They are all great choices!

  22. Block 1 is my pick. I think the light sashing or the green would look great. Block 2 is my second choice. Have fun with it no matter which you choose.

  30. Bradie, Are you sure so many other ideas are going to help you decide?!
    I like Block 1 – with green sashing.

  31. I like block 4 with the red inner border. I think the red has the zing needed to really make the quilt sing.

    Comment by Chris — December 18, 2009 @ 12:03 am | Reply

  32. Are you set on using only one block color scheme? I like 1,3 and 4.. I think they’d look nice used alternately. But if just one… block 3 with the green sashing. Let us know what you decide! (^_^)

  33. I love those colors too! I like blocks 1 and 4. Good Luck keep us posted on your progress! (((HUGS)))80}

  37. I like block 4 with the orange sashing. I did the “squint” test and block 4 had the most variation and I love the way it almost looks like a candy-cane! I’d go with the orange sashing as well.

    Can’t wait to see which one you pick and, of course, the finished top!

    Happy Holidays

  38. You could use all 4 blocks and a different sashing for each one. I love scrappy.

  39. Block 2 is my favorite. They are all good but I prefer block 2. Midge

  40. Block 1. Maybe the lightest color sashing. Undecided about border. Good Luck. Have fun.

  41. I like them all but Block # 3 is the one!!

  43. I really like block #4. I think that it draws attention to the pinwheel better. It caught my eye off the bat!
