A Quilting and Nursing blog!!
IMHO I don't think one is "better" than the other one. It all depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a more airy quilt than less leaves will work best; if you are looking for the traditional look than more leaves fits the order better. I love both. Less leaves mean more negative space to make beautiful quilting designs. Just think about that. Enjoy! ;^)
I agree with Chantal...these blocks are both beautiful. Lovely work even back in the 90's, Julie.
I like the newer less cluttered one. But all of your quilts and ideas are great!
[Being Olde hahaha]-- I like the older version better--I like those leaves on the 1st one--altho' they are both lovely and certainly above my level of applique expertise--which is just about nil...hugs, Julierose
I like the block with more leaves. The one with just two leaves per space makes me think of bats. Probably just me, and I hope I haven't ruined it for you, but I made a mystery quilt once and fabric placement ended up making bats, so I am particularly careful about unintentional bats ever since! (I sure wish I had a photo of that quilt because it gets referenced a lot...)
I like them both. For me the decision would be, Do I want to do more applique or less applique per block? So pretty.
Both blocks are pretty Julie, but I like the block with more leaves best. The one with less leaves has too much room between the leaves and looks like something is missing. Your blocks--your quilt though so choose the one you like best. Have lots of fun making them
I like the older block as well. I think the extra leaf makes it looks more symmetrical or completes the circle. They are both pretty blocks though, and whichever you choose I am sure will make a lovely quilt.
I like the original better ..... but it is your quilt to make it the way you want it.
I like the original block Julie
I like the original block because I don't like the odd pointy-ness of the single outer blocks. Also if you are enlarging the block?, did I read that right?, there will be more white space to fill.
I like both!
I like the one with more leaves. Both just fine but ...
I like the group of 3 leaves myself, but the other one leaves more room for quilting ;)
Well, had to study them a minute and when I looked at the original quilt I decided! I like the original cluttered one! LOL! Doing good Lady
I personally like the one with more leaves. More opportunities to use lots of different fabrics
I like them both... maybe they could both be in the quilt?
Personally I like the three leaf cluster--is it because we are always told odd numbers of things are more pleasing to the eye? I don't know, but it does appeal to me more. However, the other one doesn't look bad, and it would mean less work, which would give it my vote if I was the one doing it. :)
The original is Classic, the new one is more relaxed, like today's jeans, lol!
BOY, that’s a tough choice. They are both lovely!
It's too hard to choose Julie, I really like bothof them!!
They are both beautiful but I hate to say that I like the one with more leaves...Sorry... more work!!
Thank you so much, everyone, for your input!
I do like the less cluttered look. It's a choice I often end up with though and honestly, I'm not sure it's from actual preference or just plain laziness.:) lol
OK, so it took me a bit to figure out what the difference was from the new block to the old block, then I realized you had 2 new blocks!!! I need more coffee. I like the 3 leaf version, odd number thing, I guess. It's very pretty.
