Decisions, Decisions


I hate it when all the best plans get derailed! I am having trouble deciding which sashing square I should use in this quilt. Do you prefer the dark red, or the lighter red with the swirls? I am thinking the lighter red is a little too boring... the darker red gives a little more kick to the quilt. But Elliott prefers the lighter red. By the way, the border will be half square triangles of the background fabric and the dark brown (same as the corner stars.)
So, which do you prefer? (Click on the quilt to see a larger version.)

Without the borders, I'm with Elliot--I'd choose the lighter red. But I think when you add the dark brown HSTs into the border, the dark red will balance the darker value.

Whichever way you go, it will be a VERY pretty quilt.

I think the bright red looks cool, too. The light red is expected, it's pretty, but the bright red gives it punch!

Dark red for sure.

It depends what you want to do. The dark red really puches it up and I am wondering if you can't combine both. The picture really looks great with both colors-but then what do I know????? It will be beautiful whatever you do.

Light red. Definitely. Beautiful quilt.

I agree with the other posts. The light red is pretty, but I'd choose the dark red.
