Well, everyone else is showing their tops, so I will, too.  I used the sashing because I think it corrals the bias edges in and keeps it all straight.  I'm planning to  use the leftover strips for the next border, then will see what it needs from there.

Lisa:
I see you made the same blocks I did - where the "heart" is 2 fabrics instead of 1.

I definitely would not rip these blocks out.  The blocks all look great just the way they are. They are all consistent, and only you would know the difference.  I really like your choice for the sashing.  It will be interesting to see what you decide to use for the border(s).

Lisa:
One pair of blocks turned out really "anemic" compared to the rest

What about adding a little color to those white pieces with crayons? Try it on a scrap and place it on top of  a white piece in your quilt and see if it helps.

PS  I would not frog these blocks

Oh, I hope you didn't rip out and do over to get "hearts". They look like overlapped rectangles with an X on the top of the pile. March to your own drummer! They are gorgeous. If you want to make the pattern again, mark where you want "hearts" to fall and proceed, but these are lovely as they turned out. Good job!

Lovely quilt. That navy/purple color that is the background in the blocks would make a nice color for the binding, or lime green with the purple as the outermost color.

I am so impressed with all the tops I have seen. Choosing one is really going to be tough. I wasn't very happy with my jellyroll, but the blocks came together better than I expected. I have mine put together with sashing and borders but am not at all happy with it. I m going to take it apart and leave off the sashing. I really liked the look of mine on the design board without sashing, but did not go with my feelings. That is OK, I am not in a hurry. I have not had time to try and figure out why I can't post pics, but am not going to worry about it. I doubt I will finish the great re-do in time for the judging anyway.

I have been busy visiting my new granddaughter. I  have not been allowed much access to my other two grands so feel almost like a brand new grandma. It is wonderful! Fortunately for y'all I can't post pics cuz I might clog the website, roflol. Happy, happy in my neck of the woods!

Do not rip! The block itself is correct... It is the orientation, but there was nothing in the directions about orientation and that should be a given. I've checked and recheck, I've frogged and defrogged... mine is staying as is and Lisa yours should too. There were no drummers involved unless you count the dogs running in and out the room on a beautiful Autumn day. Personally, I thought  about it, but at this point to rip it out would only harm the fabric.

Personally, I couldn't give a hoot about the Viewer Choice and I have no intention in this point of my life to enter this or any of my work for public judging, so THERE!

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

The heart is there, it is just that some have the long on the right and some on the left.

Lisa, I love your quilt! Everyone else I love yours too! I love each and every quilt I've ever seen always have and always will. Just think about it. Where else in the world do you take something apart by cutting, or tearing into little pieces then put it back together in an artistic beautiful way that gives warmth and comfort... Only in quilting.

Everyone of you who underook this challenge have made totally beautiful quilts.  There are no "wrong" fabric combinations. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Quilters tend to be too hard on themselves, and always are secnond guessing their fabric choices. The is no bad, or ugly quilt. A quilt brings smiles and happiness to everyone. There is not much in life that gives us "Oh's" and "Ah's" anymore.  Be proud of your beautiful work. I am proud to call you all friends. And, we are all truly all fabric artists.

Carol, I love your quilt.  The colors are so pretty.  I like this design with or without sashing, but I have decided to put sashing on mine.

Lisa,  beautiful, happy colors and I like the sashing without cornstones.  No need to rip on your blocks because it creates an interesting background that teases the eye.  I did rip a few blocks early on because I had switched the center piece and the X didn't stand out.  I didn't think it looked right and since I only had a few blocks together I did a little changing around.  I hate ripping and it does mess up the fabric.

Debbie, all are beautiful.  It depends on which one you like.  In the picture the zigzag designs seems to get lost in the color without the sashing.  Either sashing seems to make the design in the block pop.  They are all pretty.
