Chelsea - Free Quilt Pattern!

It is sew pretty!
It is a Free Pattern from
Pattern Designed by my talented friend,
In  March, I was lucky enough to be a tester for this pattern.
The pretty Chelsea fabrics were not available to me at that time,
so I gathered some fabrics from my stash and a nearby LQS
Green/Black/Gray/White Fabrics
I dithered awhile about choices and then thought I had them set,
when it came time to cut, I made one of those mistakes ... er ...
:) design opportunities :)
Really, I thought I had checked twice to cut once but I ended up rechecking twice to cut again with these
Final Choice Test Fabrics
I did like the results.

Here are my
and ... um
Two Layouts

Option # 1 - gray center
(this is according to the pattern)
... or ...
Option # 2 - green center
(my idea design option)
So you see, I still have not pieced this top and finished this quilt.
I really would like to get this top pieced.
If you would like to help me decide whether to go with
#1 ... gray center
#2 ... green center
Please offer an opinion.
Your help is much appreciated.

  1. what a great pattern -- I love the green in the middle because of how it makes it pop more

  2. This is a great pattern! I like your green/grey combination :)

  3. I think I like the green in the center more.

    Thanks for linking up!

  4. I also believe that the green in the center goes well with the block.

  5. I would go for the green... I think it really accentuates that part of the quilt. Very pretty!

  6. I like the second choice. It really makes a difference.

  7. What a lovely little quilt Pat. It's a hard decision. hmm, I like them both for different reasons. lol. Have fun finishing it.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a kind word! :-)
