please help

with my quilting.

it felt good to get the machine out, the thread and snip out the squares.....
I am not sure how I feel about the blue stripes....
there is one problem....
the set up!
can you help me decide on how the pattern should go....

option A
it would have one row of the patchwork, divided with the three blue stripes....
continuing on....
square patchwork... stripes.

option B
the Blue stripes... and then two rows of the patchwork.
the blue stripes... and then two rows of the patchwork.

I lean towards option B- due to the fact that you will get more dolphins on the quilt, and less blue stripes.... (and I wouldn't have to go buy more fabric)
what do you think????


  1. I like the look of A better, but if you get more dolphins with B you should go with that since it is supposed to be a dolphin quilt

  2. I could back it with the dolphin material!?! that would be cute.

  3. I like B . Could always head back to the material store but that can sometimes be difficult if you then can't resist all the other bargins....

  4. wow- its like you know me... way to well. I went to buy the blues yesterday~ and walked out with some moda patchwork square (for the hopes of making another quilt)..... I have come to learn that I cant walk into that store and just look around.

  5. I was able to visit an awesome little fabric store in Petaluma last week. All we have locally here is JoAnns, which is okay, but I feel like they have the same fabric year after year. It was so fun to see/touch all the prints that I dream about/drool over online! I had way too much fun in there!
    p.s. I like B!

  6. my mom called.... she likes the one where I dont have to buy more fabric. that would be B.

  7. Always listen to your mother!

  8. It will be interesting to see what it looks like when you are done!
