Halloween Quilt - Need Advice

Tonight is Sewing Night - or maybe Beer Night - Or Pool (as in billiards) & Beer Night or maybe The Walking Dead and Coffee-all-night Night.  Oh there are just so many options!

Mark's Halloween quilt - sorry for the poor lighting and strange ghosty things at the bottom of this photo.

This is how the quilt is coming along.  I would like your advice - do you think I should suggest to Mark that he put a strip between the houses and the blocks? A plain fabric to give the eye a place to rest?

Or a narrow strip to give the block a border from the row above?  I hope to have a good time sewing tonight - and I hope you do also.    

Happy Stitching,
Nicey Linda


  1. hmmm. I'm not sure what I'd do. but maybe a border would help the houses stand out. :) such cute fabrics! And I Love the Walking Dead! My husband and I just finished season 2. ;)

  2. I think a solid strip in there would really set the houses off better. Fun quilt!

  3. I would put a strip in there. You could call the road the houses are on.

  4. Looks like it could a strip of plain black in there somewhere to make the prints pop. have a good time tonight, hope you get lots done.

  5. I just had the same problem with a Christmas quilt. I really fought it, but when I put at 1" strip between the two areas, the quilt really "woke up" & it is much nicer to look at. Good luck" - Love the fabrics.

  6. I think a thin strip would be very beneficial. I love it.

  7. I think some sashing around the blocks would be good, as you say to give the eye a place to rest.
