So I have been trying to find a quilt pattern to make my sister that I love and have had a hard time, I first wanted a striped tie quilt- but cant seem to figure out that one because I want to make it not look like a twin I want it to look like the stripes flow across the quilt with no seperation-- and by the suggestions Ive gotten it doesn't sound like I an just do the quilt all as one- doing the entire rows each aross the width of the quilt and then piece the rows together- everyone tells me I need to divide it into 4 or 3 sections..I am not sure why but Im sure they are right because this is my first quilt- so they are much more knowledgable.. This is that quilt.
So I finally found and bout an e pattern that I liked and ordered it, its got very clear instructions, doesnt look like a beginner quilt but she told me many beginners have done it, the instructions are great but a little overwhelming this one will take me longer to do but is a very pretty quilt. Heres that one- its in a queen the bottom quilt pictured except diff fabric and sashing will be white
And then I came across this one which I like- and seems much more simple but it has raw edges for the blocks, I am scared the it will look messy and not look like I worked hard on it- which I want something that looks like how hard I worked on- this may- I like it but Ive never seen a quilt with raw edges- does it look nice or messy its hard to tell- the fabric Im using no matter which one is the medicino by heather ross- so beachy and I think would go with all 3, and with the raw edged- seems kinda beachy?? here is that one- would be white backround with mendicino fabrics still
Please share your honest advice on what you think- Im sure you all an imagine what a raw edged quilt looks like, its hard to tell in the picture- but she says its intended to by raw to give it a chic look.. which one should I do?
