I've sewn a few more blocks together and laid them out on the display wall. I still am not warming to it.
I've been up and down and round about with this quilt. I'm going to change it. Now I'm leaving it the way it was designed - at least it will be finished. Nope, I'm going to change it. I seriously can't make my mind up.
I like the individual blocks. I feel good about them. They are pleasing to me. And then I lay them out complete with the sashing, and it just deflates like a balloon. I just don't like it.
So I took out all the sashings and left the cornerstones. Immediately it's better.
Now my next dilemma is to decide a/what width to make the sashings, and b/what colour to make the sashings. I'll have to buy more fabric, I don't have enough. I guess I could do white homespun, I don't think that white looks awful, do you?
And then what to do with the 2037570 remaining green/white/black strips? I've tried rearranging them into new blocks and they just don't work with anything. I'm fairly sure I will have to unpick them, or make them for the back.
All a dilemma really. But I'm determined not to put it away with all the other UFO's because it's not going to magically turn into a project I will like six months down the track.
Shall sleep on it, I think.
