Debra: Christmas Wallhanging-Graduated Sizes

This morning's efforts. I know which one I prefer but I would like to hear your preference. Isn't this fun?

This has been a very valuable exercise for me. Hopefully those that have read along have learned something too. Big Props to Cy for doing the mockups!

It's interesting that I have been pinning 'circles' on my Pinterest board with the thought of exploring them this year. And here they are!

Here's my board if you want to look at some other great circle layouts:

I prefer the top one out of the two shown as it appears a little more balanced to me. the snowflakes are not as randomly placed as I would like were it mine......the smaller ones on the top edges especially look positioned rather than like falling snow, but that's just how I see it. It's what you like that counts.

Debra Spincic said...

OK, I'm not getting it. You like it balanced and random?


As an aside, there will be more smaller doilies & embroidered ones added (I did put in a tatted one you sent me earlier) but I have to cut some crocheted runners apart and I'm not going to do that just yet.

Some of the top ones are already embroidered so I have to work with them as such (or start over).

The bottom most right in the first group is the most beautiful. In the second one in the row second to the bottom, the second from left is very delicate. Thanks for sharing.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite but I really like the largest one in the 2nd layout last row by itself.

I've always just looked at doilies as flowers but I can clearly see snowflakes too.
I guess when I finish this, I could do an adaptation with doily 'flowers'.

Well, I need just a *little* order in things and to me the first one seems to follow sort of an orderly progression of small to medium to large without being strictly so. Does that make sense?

Debra Spincic said...

It seems to be a favorite. The idea that the snow is still falling in the 2nd one is eluding everyone.

Suztats said...

hahah. really? i think it's just that they look a little bunched up and the bottom part is bare. Why'd the snow stop there?...lol...

Debra Spincic said...

It hasn't gotten there yet.

Maybe I have been in Houston too long and have forgotten how snow behaves!

Be cute if the bottom blocks were white, like piled up snow. =) That's a whole different quilt, though! I actually think I like the arrangement of the doilies on the second one better. I'm imagining the bottom part filled with stitching, of course. Maybe white thread?

Deborah McLaughlin said...

That's what the top one looks like tome, swirling snow.

Debra Spincic said...

I hadn't thought of white thread at the bottom, hmmmm, that is interesting. The idea of some white patches at the bottom is cool too.
