Decisions Decisions

Well I'm about done with my abstract quilt. I am liking it more and more. I added some painted details to it yesterday and I squared it up. I had originally thought I might do some hand stitching with the matching threads I had dyed along with these fabrics, but I don't think I will do that now, as I'm happy with it as it is....I think.

Now my only problem is which way is up!

  1. The first and last pics seem more balanced to me. I really like the piece however regardless. I like the layered effect a lot:)

  3. I think the orientation could be effected by what you name this quilt. I like 2 and 4. Nice quilt.

  4. If you want my humble opinion - I like the bottom one best. What a fun color quilt!

  5. It's wonderful, Terri. 1 and 4 look best to me, as well.

  6. I like 3 the best--it puts the heavier box/square on the bottom giving the composition some weight. Then the other 2 boxes approach it in graduated sizes so you have the samll, medium, large effect which is a pleasant size gradation.

    Great colors too!

  7. I like the vertical orientation the best. 3 is the most pleasing to my eyeballs because of the gradual increase in size of the foreground pieces.

  8. I prefer the horizontal ones but, based on the comments, I'd suggest that it be capable of being hung in any direction! It turned out great!

  9. 3 is my first choice, followed by 4.

  10. well you already know what orientation I like. I think it's a beautiful quilt Terri - I really like the color scheme and the circles provide a nice contrast to the square shapes. Nicely done!

  11. It's beautiful any way you orient it. I think it depends on whether you prefer landscape or portrait. I like 1 best, and then 3, but I see other don't agree. I'll be interested to hear which way you decide on.

  12. It looks great, any way you proverbially "slice it"! This turned out great. I love the texture, shapes and colors.

    If you really had to commit to a top and bottom of the piece, I would say your darker values have to be at the bottom (last pic). the first pic feels right, too.

  13. The quilt if fabulous. It would be great to be able to orient it both ways so you could utilize it according to the wall space.
    I really like #1...my brain is at peace with the perceived writing. So... is this really a left/right brain quiz?

  14. I like orientations #1 and #3 best. In #2, two of the centre squares appear on almost the same level which, to my eye, flattens the energy of the piece. In #4, the large square appears on top and dominates and seems like it could topple over :-)

  15. Can't you just attach it to a stick and let it spin? *S*

    Otherwise, there is no way to decide.

  16. Wonderful, Terri -- great patterns and texture and nice balance to the composition. I like #4 the best but in some ways it's most predictable... in any event, I think I prefer the vertical orientations to the horizontal ones. I love seeing you explore a new path.

  17. Love your abstract quilt! How big is it? I like nr.1 and 4 best.

  18. It looks great in all directions but I would probably pick the third. I liked the idea of spinning it too!

  19. Caryl Fallert taught us to lay the quilt on the floor, and walk around it several times until one position speaks more loudly to you than the other three. Personally, I think they all look good (great help, aren't I??).

  20. I would choose photo #1 if it were my piece. It looks great.

  21. Yay, you finished it! I love it... how do YOU feel about it, now that you've forayed into the realm of the abstract. Think you'll do more? You have an eye for it, Terry.
