    ? new quilt from old scraps update

    I have been playing with the scraps from the old moose quilt:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t220901.html

    Here are some my samples:

    Any ideas or other combinations are welcome. I have to use the moose block.

    1. totally scrappy:

    I love the scrappy personally. But, I think the moose blocks show up better with the green chain blocks. Either way, I like your quilt. It's earthy. And I have a few guys in my life that would really like that it is masculine.

    I like them all! It depends on what look you want. #1 features a scrappy look, # 2 features the chain and # 3 features the fussy cuts.

    It looks like a "9-patch Pizzazz" by Judy Sisneros or very similar - check her book out - I have made about 3 of these types of quilts - it is great for showing off fabric motiff - If you thought of this yourself then you should write a pattern for it. It is lovely.

    I think all 3 are very nice but I would vote for #3. It shows off your moose blocks. Beautiful.

    I'm voting for number 1, but as you can tell, it's each man/woman to his own taste. It's wonderful any way you choose.

    I like all three of them.
    To me the deciding factor is how prominent you want the moose fabric to be. It is most visible in the green one, less so in the other chain one and least obvious in the first one.

    They are all great, but the green one (# 3) really caught my eye!

    I have that book and yes it does have a similar feel to it. I guess I was so close to it I didn't notice. Thanks for the eye opener.

    I like the first...the med and light fabric show off the moose and do not detract. IMHO You will have to choose. Usually your first thoughts are best...

    you know the scrappy makes it look like the moose are coming out of the woods. all sort of blends to the eye, but they are all good.

    I also like the first one. I guess "framing" the moose blocks would throw the measurements out of whack.

    All three are nice but I really like #1. Please post again when you have the top finished. Going to be a great quilt.

    The moose is loose in 1, can hardly find him, in 2 he is present, in 3 he is obvious. I like 1 but of course I'm not looking for the moose, I can see why 3 would be the answer - he is right in your face.

    Very hard to choose. I like #1 and #3 but can't decide between those two.
