Decisions, Decisions.

It's fabulous to be at this point. I'm now in the decision making stage with all the blocks. Do I straight set them 9x9 for a 90 x 90 top?
or set them on point for a 98 x 95 top with 22 blocks left over for a small quilt?
There is more work to set it on point, but this hasn't been a fast project anyways.
So what's your preference, straight set or on point?

Hard choice. I have some of these blocks made and plan on doing a straight setting. But the on point setting gives them such a different look. Not as easy to recognize them as a Sister's Choice block. I could see them set with a darker background that way.

I think the on point setting makes the block just come alive. Whats a little more work at this point.

On point in my estimation.. Beautiful work by the way.

Don't know why, but this is one block I have always preferred in a straight set. I guess I just like the look of the block better that way.
Love this quilt. It is on my "to do" list for this year, but as the year progresses I think it may have to be bumped to next year's list. : )

I like the straight set better. For me, the blocks look better straight on...Love these blocks!

Hard to choose, but my gut says straight line. Either way your quilt will be beautiful, wonderful choice of colors.

Pretty blocks - I think they sparkle on point!

Great blocks. I have to say, I am partial to "on point".

I think the on point setting looks the best. Nice blocks.

I sure do love these blocks! I think I like them best straight. I feel like they look more like stars. But on point is my second choice, lol.

Mariella said...

On Point, definitely, if it was my choice. Love these blocks!!!

Louise said...

I too am going to say on point...

The on point set is my fav, but the straight set is good, too.
