It's never too soon to start dithering over the setting for a quilt, right? Even a quilt that I'm not officially making. Because sooner or later, I'm going to start making this quilt, and it would be good to have a plan.
So, last post, I'd tried laying out the blocks on a scrap of red.
Responses were mixed and about evenly divided. Some liked the red, some didn't. (I actually have an ulterior motive for wanting to mix red into these blocks. All shall be revealed in time.)
I'm not really knocked out by the alternate red blocks, so I tried a few other settings. You know, as long as I was playing with monkeys anyway.
Zigzags look pretty good.
Though I think I like the up and down zigs better than the horizontal ones.
And simple sashing looks pretty good, too.
Though I definitely like the on point set better than a straight set...
Though, Cathy reminded me that just setting them next to each other on point looks pretty good, too. (Go see her version. Right now. I'll wait. I had forgotten how much I loved it until I went and looked at it again. My favorite version of Monkey Wrench EVER.)
So, I tested that out, too.
With red side triangles, of course.
One of the big pluses for this set is that I'll need lots and lots more monkeys, since it will be solid monkeys. (All monkeys, all the time...) I've grown quite fond of the little monkey blocks turning up here and there. (And there. And over there, too.)
So, a lot of food for thought. I'll be able to keep up the dither for a good long time!
And while I was dithering, I threw together a few more Ohio stars, since I'm still playing catch up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
It's beginning to look a lot like a rainbow...
Linking with Oh, Scrap! Where there's more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
