Quilter's Eyes & Opinion Requested



Help ! I need another pair of eyes! I'm not much to ask opinions of my work..but this time I would appreciate the comments. I made this piece of quilted felt fabric to turn into a felted cell phone case for a friend - and now I am not sure. I keep seeing other little quilts in it - asking to be made.

It's a small peice - only 9"X15" - but I like it. It would make a nice cell case ---it has flannel on the back and the quilting looks good on that side too. I could just make another, larger piece for a quilt.

What do you think? Cut it up or save it for a quilt element ?

I would probably save it for a quilt element. If it is calling to you that much there is a reason for it. The colors are absolutely dynamite together and the stitching has beautifully accentuated them. You can always make up another piece for your friend's cell phone case.

This is a wonderful piece. I, personally, would hate to see it get cut up.

I don't think I would cut it up, but rather make it into a small quilt...it's so pretty. Make another for your case and see what develops. That might help to answer your question for any future projects.

Marie, It is a very pretty quilt. To me, the only person who knows what to do with this is you..YOu can either do it anyway. I see it as whole quilt and also see it as smaller mini quilts.. You could always make a smaller mini quilt but the it might just off a bit in color and would be just as pretty..Love the bold colors. hugs, Lorraine

It is gorgeous, and I can see why you hesitate. Why not set it aside and make another cell phone case and see if it is satisfactory? I agree that your felted & quilted piece has many art quilt possibilities. Would its potential be lost on a cell phone case?

Why not make the larger piece first to see whether you like it. I think it would be a pity to modify it as it looks wonderful as it is, but if you can make a larger piece that's as good then go for it. Personally I'd want to keep it as it is!

Oh I like this! Great colors, too!! Just make it into a 9"x15" wall quiltlet/hanging, and make something else for your friend's cell phone... (JMUFHO -- Just My Unasked-For Humble Opinion!!)

I'd keep it the way it is- it's wonderful!

Make another cell phone case, then let this one speak to you and decide (either it decides or you decide or both...not sure which) what it will be and how... left whole as is, worked into something more, cut apart and worked into something different / larger.....

Hugs, me
