Quilt Border Decisions

I finally have been able to spend  some time in my sewing  room. Not a lot of time, but better than nothing.

So I designed and stitched up this quilt top -- except for attaching the borders.  I can't  decide which way to attach them.

Should I  add the house border with the roofs pointing away from the center? In this layout, the border houses are oriented the same way the center houses are.

Or should  I add them with the roofs pointing towards the center? This is the layout I'm leaning toward. I think the border units look more like houses oriented this way for some reason.

Such a dilemma.

Have a great day!

I love the quilt. I think that I wouldI vote for the house roofs facing away from the center. For some reason I don't think that it would look good with the roofs facing the center, but then again, that could just be me. I'm thinking of a pattern that I have with houses and their roofs all point towards the edge, not the center.

Hi Nancy,
I like the second layout the best. Actually they both look nice, but for some reason I like the second one a bit better. I'm surprised at how much it changes the quilt to switch the border.

On another note, would you be willing to come to my quilt guild in the Fall to do a trunk show of your new book? E-mail me if that is something you could do. We meet the first Saturday of the month.

Have a great day!
