    Need Help

    I started this quilt I am guessing last summer and thought it to be to bright for a queen quilt and I have all the blocks done and half of the rows put together, but when I look at it I think it would be better as four small lap quilts, so my question to all of you is, should I keep going for queen or take it apart and make four small quilts?

    I think it's beautiful! As a queen, it would depend on the room's decor - is it modern and contemporary? If so, this would be a great addition. If you decide to make four smaller quilts, they'd be great too. I love your color combinations.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Keep it as is. Don't waste good work and time. I like the bold colors, doesn't matter what size it is. It will keep a bed good and warm. lovely.

    It will look great on a queen size bed. Do you have a queen size bed to put it on? If not then maybe in half for matching twin beds? It is beautiful!

    I love it either way! It would not be too bright for me as a queen and I would probably put a black border on it.

    Its very bright If you don't have the decor to go with such a bold quilt I would make 2 or 4 smaller ones. Love the colors though Go with your heart

    If it stays as a queen be prepared to get more of the fabric and make curtains also. The colors and pattern are great. No matter what you do you can't lose.

    I agree... this is so stunning that any way you choose to finish it would be good. I'm not familiar with this pattern but I love it! What is it?

    The pattern is called Hugs and Kisses by Jaybird Quilts, you have to have the Creative Grid Lazy Angle Ruler for this pattern.

    Also I would like to thank everyone for there help, still taking in all the feedback for my decision.

    Don't forget, you can use thread to tone it down a little.

    I find it much easier on the eye when I turn the screen and the stripes run horizontally.

    I'd leave it as one piece, but calm it down with a wide dark border (the same color as the diamonds in the design.) You could also make dark pillow shams with borders that match the quilt. Its very pretty.

    Very pretty. I think the lap quilt idea is perfect.
