Design Wall Monday

Over the weekend I started cutting and piecing another Mock Trip Around the World. Pattern found here. I did adjust my strip sizes so that the block would finish at 9 inches and the quilt (without borders) at about 54 x 72. I made one for my DD and DH with borders for Christmas, found here...you just need to scroll sown a bit. BTW, DD nabbed the quilt for her bed!

Sunday night I had all the strip piecing done.

Today I chain pieced the blocks together.

So, which set do you like better?

Black center?

or Blue Center?

blue center :-) What do you think you're going to do with the borders? That may make help you make the decision.

I lean toward the black center. Either way it looks great.

I like the blue because the black is a neutral, the white is the bright and I would want the blue to pop!

But it is your quilt--which way do YOU like it?

I'm voting blue center. Hope you are well. Maybe some Saturday when I feel the need to visit BF we can meet for lunch?
