For now though I have to show you the one on the frame at the moment. It is a mystery quilt, i.e. I don’t know who did it as it has been donated for charity, but it has its problems poor thing.
It is to say the least a bit wonky. Not all of the seams meet where they should, some have funny bits at the side, and in places it is trying to be a small parachute. Not all the blocks are the same size either, but there is not a lot I can do about that bit.
|Wonky and interesting sides, see the wobbly|
way it hangs.
So I am going to have to work some magic on this one to take the eyes away from the ‘design’ elements of it.
The good news about this though is that I can use a variety of different stitches and fillings to make it beautiful.
The first block is done and is looking better already. Feathers tend to make everything look better I think, gives it a little bit of something scrummy.
There will be a few more of these to go on the rest of the quilt before I have finished with it, but maybe not of the same style or shape as I want to mix it up a little.
I will keep you all updated on how it is getting along. I am busy on Monday, but after that it is back into the studio and on with it. Till then, take care.
