I was planning on launching a new series of designs today, but uploading and editing was just taking too long so I decided to post another design for Meredith's Log Cabin Quilt:
So far we've had two possible quilting designs, both with the same center pattern, but with different borders. See Part 1 and Part 2 for those photos.
Here's another possible border design for this quilt using the same center design:
What's the main difference with this design?
The center is completely the same, but changing the lines to run along the border, boxing in the center pieced portion draws more attention to it.
The lines act like a bulls eye pulling your eyes inward. Unlike the first design where the quilting was so complex your eyes didn't know quite where to go, this design forces you to see straight into the center square.
I've never been formally educated in art, but I do know that you want the viewer's eye to move around the piece, taking it all in.
I like this design very much because it emphasizes the piecing without overwhelming it. If you're going to bother to piece all those strips together, you might as well get the credit for it!
Again this design will work great on a bed quilt for a quick finish.
Let's go quilt!
