Opinions, Please!

I need your opinion(s), please!

I started these mini baskets sometime last Summer/Fall after Karen was kind enough to share her basket template with me. I have no specific plans in mind - just know that I want every basket to be a different fabric (no repeats). When Kathie read that, she offered to share fabric with me and sent a ton. Thank you so much, Ladies!

Anyway, I need your opinion(s) because I've come to a screeching halt and now I want to get busy again. The 10 blocks on the left are sewn down with a straight setting in mind; the baskets/blocks on the right are just prepped with an on-point setting in mind - which setting would you do?

I think I've answered my own question but I want to know want you think. Please!


Thanks bunches! I'll be waiting to hear from you!

In Friendship!

I always like on point better. :)

rachel griffith said...

wow i would be going against the grain if i said the 1st one!!!
:D

for the record, i like them BOTH way, and i think BOTH would make a beautiful quilt.

but i can see the on point being more of a statement.
so go with on point.

:D

Linda said...

Definitely on point.

Yvette said...

On Point.

Nancy Anne said...

To me, on point always seems more lively and active.

Pat said...

I agree, on point.

Libby said...

On point is the way to go *s*

I vote for on point! How cute.

Lizzie said...

Good Morning, my vote is on point. The composition is just more pleasing. Those baskets are so cute!

Lisa said...

On point! It just adds some character to it.

Cathi said...

Definitely on point. But since you have already sewn some down for a straight setting, what about using the straight setting for a border around the outside. You could alternate the straight setting blocks with a solid square of the same size so you don't have to make a lot more. Then add another solid border after that. Can't wait to see it finished.

free indeed said...

Baskets always seem to be done on point...it has very nice eye appeal.

Stacey said...

on point for sure - more interest - looks great can't wait to see it all finished!!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I really like the ones on point. I don't really like putting those quilts together but this is really cute with baskets on point.

Elaine Adair said...

Ditto!!! Cute little plump baskets! 8-))))

However, the cute little spring blocks are even MORE WONDERFUL!

Sherri said...

I definitely love the on-point setting~!

Yaya and Papa said...

I think the baskets are set off better "on-point!"

Joyce said...

I always prefer on point and it looks like everyone else does too!

jen duncan said...

Well, I guess it's pretty universal--baskets should be on point! So cute. Love ALL the quilts on this page, but seriously thinking I need to make one of those furrowed four patches. Love it!!

Tamara said...

I like the on point baskets better. I may be biased seeing as I am just figuring out how to do my first quilt on point. ;)

Beth said...

I think they look better on point.

Kathie said...

on point and the border can be straight :)

Cathy said...

I prefer the on-point setting. Maybe you can use the straight-set blocks you already completed in something else.

quiltdolls said...

On Point. I did have a question is the background fabric different too? or just the basket fabric?
Kim

Stina said...

Definetly on point...with the other setting you will need to do something more... Good luck!!

zizzybob said...

Looks like everyone like the on point ones...me too!

Quilts And Pieces said...

No question about it - on point!

Karen said...

My vote is for on point.

PamKittyMorning said...

My first love of baskets is always on point but how cute would staggered straight sets be? Different at least.

Carol said...

OMG they are sooooooo cute...On Point...hands down.

Deb said...

Definitely the on point setting, the baskets stand out more

Teresa said...

Definitely on-point.

This is going to be a cute quilt.

Gayle said...

Definitely on point!

janet said...

Aren't they cute, I vote the same as everyone else. You could always do something interesting with the setting triangles and border.

Lynn said...

On point!

Wendy said...

I vote for on-point. Those are some adorable baskets, how big do you think the quilt will be?

Carol said...

I like the basket set on point. Really cute baskets!

Beth said...

I really like both ways, how about doing the center on point and then doing a solid inner border, then a border or the straight set baskets, then another solid border to frame that pieced border.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Definitely on point! But what about those lovelies that are done square?

swooze said...

I like the on point. More interesting I think.

crossroadsquilts said...

On point, definitely!

Bari B.

Betweens said...

darlene.. how about on point in the middle of your quilt and then for the boarders have a darker background and then you can have the other ones straight.. I think you would get the best of both worlds..I can picture these now they look so fabulous!!

Terry said...

I see you have plenty of answers already but the on point setting really shows off the baskets more! Lovely work, BTW! :0)

Carrie P. said...

I vote "On Point"

Carol said...

So yesterday after seeing this post with the cute baskets I decided to design my own mini basket to applique on blocks. Partly because I don't have this pattern and because I want to try my hand at designing my own stuff. It took me a while but I finally came up with my own version.

limpingalong said...

Definitely on point!

Robyn said...

Hi Darlene :D
I like them on point too!
hugs
Robyn xx

So cute!

Cory said...

The on-point setting is more traditional for a basket quilt. I would make mine on point. You have done a nice job on those very cute baskets. Thank you for sharing them with us. Take care and God bless, Cory

Nan said...

I am lovin' the on point, my friend!

Dawn Heese said...

I hope you chose the on point option. It is definitely the winner.

tami said...

I prefer the on point, a lot.

Diane said...

How pretty! I think the uniqueness of each basket shows up better on point. Best wishes, Diane

Kaaren said...

My preference would be on point. They appear to add more visual interes that way. Great job!

Shasta said...

Wow 62 comments already! I am always fond of the on point setting for baskets. It just seems to fit better.

kjquilts said...

Cute little baskets! I would absolutly put them on point. How many are you going to do?

Red Geranium Cottage said...

I love them on point Missy!!!

Pam said...

Hi Darlene. Has anyone yet suggested a centre of on point blocks with row of straight up and down blocks on the sides of the quilt. Then you could use all the blocks you have done. They look very cute!

Jane said...

If I had the energy I would read them all to see if anyone says anything but 'on point'

The only other way would be to add sashing etc.

Jantine said...

I would definitely go for the on point setting!
