    update on dizzy quilt

    Okay, this is still on my design wall in many pieces, but you can get a "sort of" idea of what it might end up looking like. I still have to sew the blue triangles on, sew the rows together, and decide on borders, but it doesn't make me quite as dizzy now. I think there is hope for it, and I think I will like it.

    What do you think? Does it still make you dizzy?

    I think once you get the borders on, it will tame down all the squares and really quite lovely...not that it isn't now but borders will help.

    Thank, I was hoping someone else would think it would look tamer when the borders are on it! It already looks tamer than it did two days ago.

    Dina, the borders really make a difference for me. Love 2 color quilts and love your pattern but yes, the before made me dizzy too.

    I think it looks great! I am really liking 2 plain (no pattern fabric) coloured quilts ever since seeing the red and white exhibit. Yours is going to look super!

    Yes, I loved the red and white exhibit too. In fact, I almost went with red and white, but I really don't trust red yet. (I am fairly new to quilting.)

    with the addition of the blue triangles, it looks much better. so more borders will help as well. the colors are really great.

    Glory Be! The ending triangles certainly do hold the quilt together. Doesn't seem to be moving as much as earlier.

    People break laws and spend an awful lot of money getting "dizzy"....bet they'd never think of looking at a quilt! All jokes aside, it's a stunner I love two colour quilts and yours is exceptional. Thanks for sharing and look forward to seeing it completed.
