I got stalled making a log cabin couch quilt when I inadvertently pleated the backing fabric in several places. It was bad enough to require unpicking. Ironically, I might’ve finished the blanket sooner had I decided to hand quilt the layers together!
I’m also adding new layers to an old village quilt (below) in an attempt to make it more interesting. First, I cut it in half.
Then I started looking at the flow of color and shape. See those two bright orange houses in the lower left? I covered them with black tulle to tone down their brightness. Revising roof lines, adding windows, undoing some of the bulky appliqué followed.
Trying to improve a mediocre piece is not my favorite thing to do, but with another evening or two, these two vertical pieces will be ready to bind. I figure I can hack it that long.
