Cut or not to cut?

I need some guidance,

One of the items in my UFO / Accountability Challenge is a quilt top that I have described as "half completed".  Here in lies my problem/dilemma/indecision. 

This is my "half done" top

It needs a good iron and some boarders.

It might be hard to see but on some of the white squares I have drawn
 some flowers etc to be embroidered on.

Now, tonight whilst I have been Blog hopping I found this .......

Now I don't know what to do.

Do I just finish off my quilt ... add a boarder, finish the embroidery etc?


Do I cut it up and make the "Dolly Dresses" quilt pictured above?

Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if you are interested in the pattern for the "Dolly Dresses"
quilt it can be found Here at Jaybird Quilts

Thanks for stopping by,
Enjoy your creativity,


  1. I prefer your quilt to the Jaybird one :)

  2. I agree with Janine. Although I do like the other, I prefer your version. Maybe just choosing one of the colored fabrics (rose or green) for the binding....or narrow border if you want a larger quilt. The 25 patch squares give it such a quaint look that really fits. Doreen

  3. I like yours the way it is. If you want to add a name, perhaps it could be included in the border?

  4. lovely,well done,finish it off,add border and embroidery

  5. Some many quilts, so little time. Yours is adorable. Maybe a little white border and scrappy binding. It's worth finishing. Good luck.

  6. I like yours better! Just add a border. I like the squares white, gives a clean look. But don't cut it up! That's just more work.

  7. I really like the way you have done yours best

  8. I agree with everyone else, I love your quilt as it is, it's very pretty. I look forward to seeing it finished.

  9. Oh goodness - I love them both!! Yours is so cute, and so is the other one! Is it possible to do both?? Always our dilemma - sew many cute projects, sew little time :)

  10. Oh do not cut that quilt, you might even add a border of more of the four patches all the way around. It is gorgeous.
