i liked it all right originally, but the extra stripes really look great!
i'm not a very straight piecer, so this would make things easier for me.
great work and excellent idea!!!

I saw this over on flickr and loved it there, too. What I love is that you did not run the faux sashing along the seams, but sliced up your blocks with it. Makes the overall look much more complex and intentional. I really, REALLY like it!

I have to echo what many have already said- your idea to add the extra bias strips across the blocks was brilliant! It's a fantastic design element! I love the finished product!

And, I love it even more because this is a quilt that I could handle... I just can't deal with the matching of seams on other quilts Wink

Oh, thank you, you have given me a fantastic idea! I have the exact same type of quilt--just big old blocks sewn together--because I am the newbiest of newbie quilters. I think strips across like you did will accent the design beautifully! Now if I can just get up the nerve to sew the batting, etc, I'll be great...

I love your quilt and I love your embellishment!

It's so lovely! Even though it's black and white, the contrast between the different fabrics is just enough and really nice!

You are soo clever!  Your inspiration was just what the quilt needed.  It is absolutely divine now.  Well done

I love your finished product. I can't believe what a difference just adding the strips made. I'm not normally a huge fan of quilts, but I really really like your final quilt. Great job!!
