red and aqua quilt bee












above are three layouts for my red and aqua bee quilt. the first one has a red on white dot alternating with a white on red dot, and the second one has a white dot on red alternating with a white dot on aqua, and the third one has a red dot on white in every block. which is your favorite? someone mentioned that the first one has a secondary pattern happening with the red also....i dont know if i like that it isnt symmetrical. i guess i could add another row to two sides to make it more symmetrical. what do you think?

Hellooo! I like #3 so that the red strips in your spider webs aren't fighting for attention from red centres (also solves symmetry woes). It would also let your spidey building skills shine and give your eye somewhere to rest in between all of those stripes....if it seems too traditional, then #2 gets my second vote as the red and blue solid centres balance each other.

I love #3 -- all polka dots -- really draws attention to the strings and is so playful!

hmmm, I haven't made a quilt so I am no expert. But I do like the 3rd one with a red dot in every block, symetrics be damned.

It is #3 for me too! I really love this idea, I might have to try it myself.

I might be a little late in the game here, but I really like #3.
