    should i keep going question

    I saw a "new" pattern that I wanted to test out before i cut into my good fabric so I am using scraps for it. I was wondering if I should keep going or not. what do you guys think? I attached a pic of it so far. I don't have a pattern for it but it is a labyrinth pattern I saw in a fabric catalog. that is why i thought i would try it out first with scraps so i could test the size of the blocks. what do you guys think? should i keep going? there is another round of blocks that I would need to do to finish it.

    It looks good to me - nice looking scraps. Do you not like working with the pattern?

    I'd keep going! You'll have a really nice little quilt, and be able to use some of your scraps in the process.

    Looks like a nice spring quilt or table topper or wall hanging or baby quilt or or or?

    You've gone that far, so why not finish it up?
    And then onwards to your "real" fabric, once you have the "practice" one done!

    Have you decided what you're going to put in the centre yet?

    I am just putting the green fabric of the points in the center. I am just wondering if I should finish it up here or continue with the next round of squares. Thanks for the comments. I can't wait to start the next one in this pattern. It is going to be in batiks.

    the medium blue could be more medium. it doesn't contrast quite enough but keep going. that is a great pattern

    If you feel that you have the pattern figured out with what you've done already, you could just finish it and it would be a very nice wall hanging or throw as it is, if you don't want to add another round of blocks, you wouldn't need to.

    Yes, keep going. Your good stuff is brighter probably and it will be really pretty. As this one is. I don't see how you can just look at a pattern and do it. I can hardly have a pattern and do it.ha.

    I like it. Please continue and make sure we see the next steps. Keep what you have for a table topper or something.

    There's not a lot of contrast but remember this is just a sample to see if she really likes the pattern.

    It's simple squares and triangles. Why use a pattern?

    I absolutely love stars!! I love your fabric. Do you have more of it or do you have to use different fabric for the next block? I would at least make a runner out of this, at the least. If it were me, I would go ahead and make a quilt out of it. You seem like you know what you are doing.

    This was my thought when I saw it in the catalog. I am probably doing it wrong based on directions but who cares as long as it comes out looking the same.

    I really like it!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
