2016 APQ UFO Challenge List

Wonky Trees

It is hard to believe that it is Monday and I actually have something to show on my design wall. This project is my project for my bee challenge this quarter. I got all the blocks done at this month's work day, and got them squared up last night. I am at least the third person in my bee to make this quilt and the first suggested offsetting the blocks rather than setting them straight. I like how hers looks, so am going with the same approach (I think that's what they call stealing shamelessly). I could use a little input though. Do you like the first or second version better? The difference is the use of all green fabrics on the "end caps" vs. using green and red. There will be a small containment border (either red or cream) and then an outer border of green with a little red it in and the red cornerstones.





Thanks for sharing your opinions :)

I like the 2nd one a bit better -a bit more "punch" to the overall...

I agree. I think I like the 2nd one slightly better but both are nice.

I had to look twice to see the difference at first. I was looking at the corner squares! duh! :) The first one seems more harmonious and the 2nd one is more dramatic. Both are good depending on what you want it to "say" and where it will be used or who it is for. Lots of decisions. Anyway you look at it, it is cute.

The second one looks more balanced to me. I look forward to seeing which one you decide on. Love the idea of offsetting the blocks!
