Which way to go?

 I was just taking pictures, trying to clarify in my mind if I really want all those little leaves on the sashing vines or not.  It looks pretty busy, up close...
But in the picture, I like it...may I ask your opinion?  Leaves or no leaves...that is the question!!!  LOL!!

Have a great day all, and Rebecca!!  You were chosen at random to receive the scrap book...congratulations and please send me your snail mail address.  Stay tuned..more giveaways to come...thank you everyone for your interest.

I definitely like the leaves...It seems too plain without them. Either way it's beautiful! :0)

I love the leaves, it is fantastic. I have found that taking a picture often helps to make a decision.

hetty said...

I vote for leaves! I love the way it looks with them. Not busy at all to my eyes.

Quilter Kathy said...

I like the leaves! It looks so organic and alive.
It is probably busy to you when you look at it close up, but from here, it's awesome!

Pam said...

Me too! I like the leaves :) What's the pattern? It's super cute!

loulee said...

I'd say with. :-)
Looking good either way.

Rose Marie said...

Oh, leaves, please!

Sandi said...

Leaves, the wavy line makes me dizzy without them and looks incomplete. Now to see what other suggest.

trudy wassink said...

with leaves please

Susie said...

Hands down - it's with the leaves.

anne bebbington said...

Definitely with the leaves - if you can stand to do the work it will be sooooo worth it - gorgeous!

Kristy said...

I say yes, do the leaves. It makes such a beautiful border around the blocks. K-

Missy Shay said...

I thought without the leaves were very pretty, but then when I saw the leaves, I thought wow! Definitely add the leaves!

Sandy said...

Should I even bother to vote?
Looks like the leaves have it!
(I'm with the majority!)

Chantal said...

I too like the leaves but you are making the quilt for your own pleasure so how about "leave"ing some out? !! I mean one vine with one leaf or two and the other sashing with three or just two leaves per vine but make them bigger. It won't look so busy but it won't be plain either. Or maybe I am just making the question harder to answer. Good luck Julie.

Nancy said...

Leaves are good, but is agree with Chantal that your eye might be happier with fewer leaves per vine.

Janet O. said...

I love the look with the leaves--that said, it is your quilt and you need to be happy with it!

Kyle said...

I like the look of the leaves, but like it was said it is your quilt and your time commitment. The leaves tie it all together, at least for me.

jmniffer said...

I like it better with the leaves. Good idea to take a picture and view it that way to help in your decision making process.

Sandra said...

I think it needs the leaves. It's beautiful!

AnnieO said...

The flowers are simple so I like the leaves on this one. But file away that cute wavy line idea for another project.

Vicki W said...

Leaves for sure!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Definitely the leaves! Doesn't look too busy to me.

Rebecca in AK said...

Thank you Julie!! I was so surprised that I won the giveaway! In fact I went back and read through the comments to make sure there wasn't another Rebecca! lol I love the quilt on the cover of the book! Yes, the leaves look wonderful! My digital camera has become an important quilting tool for me. I don't know what it is about taking a photo, but it sure helps me to 'see' my quilt.

Mama Joan said...

I know it will quadruple your time investment, but the leaves just make it oh-la-la. You piece soooooo quickly though, that it will only be a few more minutes for YOU.

Kristie said...

You are so creative! I love the leaves!

The leaves look wonderful-looks bare in the other photo.

Flickenstichlerin said...

The leaves look perfect, without them it looks a little empty. I mean still good, but with the leaves is prettier I think.
