The quilt that may never b e finished
The inspirational print
You should go ahead and finish this project. Quilts often take on a whole new personality once they have been quilted. There is always an argument whether it is the fabric and piecing that makes the quilt or the actual quilting. I am leaning towards the quilting but, of course, it is both.
I'll definitely reconsider whether or not to finish this one. You are so right about the way the quilting changes and adds to the finished quilt. It really can make it or break it.
Oh, please finish this project. I thought I was disappointed in some of my own projects but once the project was completed, I found I was my own worst critic. I have learned that by completing projects I learn more about techniques, color, and gain experience. Yours is a beautiful project that is worthy of being finished.
Thank you for the encouragement.
I agree with everone else. I love the bright colors and the blocks are beautiful. I find that the borders can tone it down if you think it is to loud. Use a dull plain color,or a neutral for the border to tone it down. Somebody would love to own it.
Thanks so much. I appreciate all of the ideas and comments so much.
I love your quilt. Pink and purple are my favorite colors, but this green works just fine. I like the different pattern blocks, makes the quilt very interesting to look at. You have skill.
This is gorgeous!!!! I attempted quilting once but never finished it.
Oh, thank you! I do intend to finish this one someday. Quilting isn't hard, but like your cake decorating (which I would love to learn), it's a skill that takes lots of practice. You might consider trying it again on a very small project - like a pretty table runner to put under your cakes.
