WIP Wednesday - Raffle Options

Hello to all of you visiting from Quilt Story! Thank you so much to Heather and Megan for featuring my Zig Zag Friends quilt today! What a treat for me.

The original post didn't show the full quilt. I went back to look for one, and it seems I never took one! I guess no one was home to hold it up that day.

Moving on to our regularly scheduled WIP Wednesday post...

 It was not a terribly productive week, quilt-wise. Girl Scout cookie season is in full swing, so there's not much time to do anything else.

Finished:  I love these bee blocks that I sent to Kelleigh for the Modern Stash Bee.

In Progress:  When I counted up all the Ninigret Quilter's raffle quilt units, I realized I was short. I made more crazy stars and star points and started laying it out last night. I don't have a design wall- I use a flannel backed plastic table cloth on the living room floor. If I need to move it, it can be rolled up and the pieces stay in place.

This will be a big quilt, so I can only lay out a quarter at a time. Here's the top left quadrant.

Plan A

After I had it set out as I had planned, I thought it might be interesting to switch around the small stars. Interesting, yes, but do we like it better? 

Plan B

My Facebook friends like Plan A better. What say you, blogland?

On Hold: The rest of my WIP list is waiting for me to finish the raffle quilt. You can see it on my WIP page and in my Threadbias studio. I want to love Treadbias, but I haven't completely figured it out yet.

Thanks for stopping by! Now hop on over to Freshly Pieced for more WIP Wednesday inspiration.

I found your lovely zig zag quilt on Quilt Story and I'm so impressed! It is just lovely, and the way you paired so many designers' fabrics blows me away. I aspire to do that. :)

Oh, and I vote for plan B quilt as well, but both arrangements are so nice.

It's a gorgeous zig zag quilt. I'm glad I read their blog post this morning.

I just had to click on these beautiful blue stars. For the upper left quadrant of a quilt, I think I personally prefer Plan A, although either would work well ... JMHO Usually when I ask opinions, I end up listening to my own quilty muse and I always am happy with the finished quilt.

Love the bright zig zag!

Thanks for sharing ... :) Pat

I like plan B better, but I love how you have so much movement in either version.
