WiP Wednesday...Where I'm Back on Track!

So Seussical is over and I've been sewing. I've been trying to get my Carpenter's Wheel quilt done for my bed. This was the quilt I was originally making for my bed. Then I decided to put the Bottled Rainbows on it. Then I washed it. Yeah, dumb move. It shrank just enough that it was a bit too small for my bed. I have a sleigh bed and I need the drop on the sides to be long enough to cover the mattresses. So here is the most recent block.

I'm also contemplating which set up to use for putting them together. I was originally looking at regular side by side...

but now I'm thinking about putting them on point.
What do you think?

I've also got another Double Slice quilt in the works that you can see here. This one was a quilting guild project this weekend.

Your carpenter's wheel is going to be beautiful on your bed. It looks so complicated, but as I inspect it, it's just HST. It will be an heirloom.

oh I'm really liking it on point! I'm working on some equally ginormous swoon blocks but have halted progress because I'm just not motivated. On point makes me think...

It looks great on point!

I almost always prefer on point, and especially with those huge blocks, it's going to give you some nice negative space around the edge so the blocks can really pop. That's my 2 cents:)
