Pot or Not?

My concept for my March quilt is getting closer to being a finished product. I had the idea to make this "value" quilt from half-square triangles in rainbow stripes. It was a bit tricky to lay out, when I had it laying on my two cutting tables, I locked the door to the room so zooming grandkids wouldn't disturb it and make the squares fly off until I sewed it together.

Now my question is to add the pot or not to add it. It will be a pain to do, and the coins will definitely be delicate and hard to attach. I may rethink the pot at the end of the rainbow for the sake of a more long lasting quilt.

What do you think?

The quilt is gorgeous! As to the pot, I like the pot but it seems too small for the scale of the colored blocks. Hope that helps. :)

I love the pot but without it you could use it for more than one season!

I don't make many holiday specific quilts because the holidays pass so quickly. I LOVE your quilt and think that rather than having the pot on the front I would make a pot label for the back.

Barb, that was what I thought also, no holiday quilts. But when I mde my first one using the large HSTs, it took one night to put together the top, so I decided I could do one per month! It has been fun, and keeps me in the fabric stores but out of the bars at night! So, my biggest problem is finding a place to store them once the month is over! I'm going to have quite a collection come next October.

I love this quilt! With or without the pot of gold!
