I'll try to be clearer.
What are the implications (if any) if you have a quilt top where some areas are made up of many small pieces, and some areas are just big pieces of fabric? The heavily pieced areas will be thicker and bulkier due to the seam allowance. Will the quilt feel unbalanced?
I am looking at a scrappy string star quilt design (in particular Bonnie Hunter's), and I am wondering if the corners/sides would feel drastically different from the center?
Any experience in this? Thanks.
