    i agree, it would look more balanced. Very cute quilt. If you want you can still do that, just cut off half of the bottom stripe and add to the top.

    Edit: Lots of opinions for the stripe, that will teach me to read it all before I post!!!

    I agree about using it on the top and bottom both. I wouldn't use any less than 1/3 of it on the top or it still looks too bottom heavy.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I gotta ditto nan here. I think it needs some of the strip on the tops to balance it out. But The quilt is very pretty.

    I agree with QuiltnNan. Equal stripes top & bottom.

    Very pretty quilt! You did a good job! I like the stropes on the top and bottom better, but I think the stripes on the bottom needs to be less, so that it balances everything out. I also think it would be nice if you had a row of animals with the bottom stripe.

    I like the idea someone had of doing the babies name in applique on the bottom stripe. Then the bottom stripe has a purpose.

    I love it's uniqueness just the way it is, but I do love the idea of adding a name on the bottom, and that creating it's special purpose.

    I like it where it is but just a tad smaller like in portion to the other rows like the zebras, elephants, etc. Great quilt.

    I agree, the bottom is heavy, put some @ the top and I think it would be great!!!!

    YES! I do think it's better split this way between the top and bottom. Those stripes are really pretty cool - they sort of give the illusion of fringe like someone else said or maybe beading. Very nice quilt!!

    Thanks for all the reactions. I think I"ll go with the 2nd picture. Baby won't be born before I'll be sending this off, and I won't know the name, so putting that on the quilt is not an option. (Besides, I'm not much into embroidery.) I'll play around with maybe another row of animals on the bottom ... I still have monkeys and parrots left from the original fabric.

    Love your choice of fabrics and wonky log cabin. The border fabric could be used for either boy or girl. The fringe looking stripes add to the African jungle theme. I like the split stripes. Do you know what the name of the border fabric is? It would be great to have on hand.

    I'd love it if the stripes were evenly split - it adds spice to the quilt. It feels bottom heavy to me with the uneven stripes. Love the quilt, though!

    They are both nice, however... I looked at them both, went away for a while and came back. When I look at the second one, my eye is first drawn first to the elephants, then to the rest of the quilt. The first one, my eye is drawn first to the bottom, and then to the rest. That makes me like the second one better, because my eye sees first, all the hard work... Both are very nice though!
