Design Wall Monday

The Buggy Barn quilt top – Gus –  is finished.071514    (803x1024)
Actually the top was finished Saturday evening.  Since then I have been trying to decide if I am happy with the result or not – is it too busy? do I like my fabric choices? should the Gus block be moved to the back?

Looking at the photograph helps and I am leaving it as it is.  It seems to me that this is just the nature of the Buggy Barn technique – a bit crazy.  I also have to remind myself that the cat blocks will look more complete once the whiskers and eyes have been added.

The goal for this week is to get the quilt sandwich together and start the machine quilting.

    I do not think it is too busy at all. I like the layout — having Gus’s name on the front adds a bit of surprise among the cats and flowers. You’ve distributed the lighter/darker blocks very well. It looks great!

      I think that I am my harshest critic, but it is great to get a different person’s perspective of the quilt. Thank you
