Using the "dump and sew" method, I created this quilt using my red scraps. I posted the beginning photo a couple of days ago.
Since then I finished the five rows of red scraps, and I made sashing rows from white scraps. (Well, I'm in the process of doing white scraps... not quite done with them.) While taking photos of my progress, I noticed a different look with the white scraps on top, several inches inside rather than on the sides as borders.
To do this I would have to applique them on top. The blocks underneath are just long rows. They don't have blocks at consistent spaces where I could rip out a row and sew in the white. So... what do you think looks better? White scraps as horizontal rows and as outside borders...
...or white scraps set in, making this different look.. I don't know what to call it... a lattice look?
I'm hesitant to sew the whites on top as I would have to do.. I like them sewn onto the sides. But do I like the look of the "lattice" view enough to applique them in that inner spot? What do you think?
(Please ignore the curvy nature of the white vertical rows.. I would fix that on the final quilt top, plus some of that is from camera distortion.)
