Give me you opinion!

Please look!!

I know, I know everyone has already seen this block! I am concerned that maybe I shouldn't submit it to the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge! Is something wrong with the way I designed it or is it ugly, is there not enough color in it, is it bad photography? I really don't know and have no one here to ask. I really want to know! Don't worry about my feelings, just tell it like it is.

On the small chance you like it, which way should it go? Pick photo 1 or 2. Or go take some more photos? Can you tell I am feeling a bit insecure?? Over a quilt block, ha ha....

Starting something new, I really like "Quilt" by Ellen Luckett Baker from Moda. The colors are so bright and crisp. I think it will go nicely with the Kona "Coal", another favorite of mine. I collected 4 charm packs over the last few months to make a quilt for my bed. I bought them from Craftsy at a real good price. Check it out, you might find something you like! If you are on the mailing list there is a "Deal of the Day" that is delivered to your email! (Fingers crossed) I am hoping to submit it to the county fair coming up!

I love our county fair! So far, I am going to submit a jar of my "Pinapple Jam" (yummy) and Sophie's Baby Quilt. A ribbon would be nice to send with the blanket Germany. Most counties in the U.S.A have fairs and people don't even know about them. Even in cities, like Los Angles, CA, has a fair once a year. Look it up on the internet and go win some ribbons for yourself! It cost nothing to enter! It is great fun for children and adults. Thank you all for just being who you are! Lisa


  1. you should definitely enter the block and no it's not missing colour
    Photo #2 is the one!

  2. photo #2 for sure and the block is fab

  3. Lisa, no need to feel insecure. The block is wonderful! Going against the flow so far, I like photo 1. :)

    1. Changed my mind after looking at them again several times. I now like #2 the best.

  4. I like photo 2 and I definitely think you should submit this!!! It's great. Really!

  5. I think it looks great! I like photo #2 too. Just enter it. What's the worst that can happen?

  6. I like photo 2 the quilt is great! Stop panicking!!!

    The new project sounds like fun...mmmm pineapple jam sounds yummy! Ship some to me in the post will you? =D

  7. I also like Photo #2. I think that it is very beautiful. It is always scary jumping into unknown waters, but it is super exciting too. Good luck! Love the Coal color also.
    Sew Incredibly Crazy

  8. I like photo #2. I think it looks really nice and you should enter it. I know it is scary, but it is exciting, too. You never know how anything will turn out until you try it. So good luck!

  9. Definitely number 2! And just go for it! The block is fabulous!

  10. I think this is what modern quilts are all about, blending both the traditional and the new!! I love this piece. Go with photo 2

  11. I dissent...I love the block. I love the color. I love the pattern. I think you should submit it, but I like photo 1 better.

  12. You are all so wonderful. I feel so lucky!

  13. I like it, and I prefer Photo 2.
