New York, New York

That's not the name of this quilt (which for once I know already) but I had to get that post title in somewhere: On the Town is a favourite movie and that is a great song.

I've been playing around with inserting a stripe of some sort between the city fabric and the strip of rectangles.  Tried light grey, very dark grey and a black print with a bit more colour.  Didn't like any of them, but here they are anyway.


This I did like:



I made another strip, but smaller.



And now I don't like it again, but this time I think I know why and I'm pretty sure I know where I'm going next...

In the meantime I'm linking up with Lorna for Lets Bee Social - go and visit for Blogathon Canada, there's some great giveaways and a whole load of new blogs to check out. Also with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

  4. Your fourth stripe is definitely the best Kaja! It looks exciting and dynamic, with the straight lines of a city. It is always so much fun watching you work your way through a quilt!

  5. I liked the light grey until I scrolled down and saw what you went with. It's definitely the best! :) Looking good!

  6. I like the last strip best...so far. But I'm looking forward to your new idea. Thanks so much for showing the progress and decisions along the way. Much more fun than just looking at completed quilts.
    Your son should love this.

  8. I like the last strip before you made it narrower, but can't wait to see what you decide to do. I really appreciate seeing how other quilters work through the decision-making, so thanks for sharing.
