Ugly Quilt Leftovers, A, B, or C?

I had a lot of 1/2 square triangles leftover from piecing this top for my quilt guild “Ugly Fat Quarter” challenge:

2-DSCN8077So another quilt is in order, but I don’t want to be making a trillion more 1/2 square triangles.

Here are 3 possible layouts, each will require more cuts:

A. This would be the simplest to finish, I have enough 5 inch squares I can cut for this.


B. This would just require more black squares to be cut.3-DSCN8275C. This would require a lot more 1/2 square triangles to be made: 🙁

1-DSCN8273It is not going to be very large (maybe 40-40/50 range) depending on layout.

What would you choose? And why?

Thanks for weighing in.

Decisions on the Journey, Jackie

  • Pam @ Hip to be a Square

    If you don’t have a passion to keep working with the bits, I would go with the simplest and easiest, which sounds like option A. I also happen to like that one the best, too. 🙂

  • Quiltin’ Jenny

    I like C but would go with what is easiest!

  • Bonnie Terrey

    I like the top one – is it already sewed together? The others seem like too much black. The contrast between the background fabric & the lines. Otherwise, I’d choose A.

  • Lorri

    Actually, I like the first option, which is the simplest. Nice.

    I love the simplicity of A
