Avery’s quilt is coming along after a rough start. Starting over was the right thing to do but scary. I felt like I had put so much time into the failure I couldn't let go. If only I had a photo to share with you I thought I'd taken a few but they're no where to be found. This is the initial sketch which I think was pretty good. It just didn't work on the design wall!
To start over I weeded out some fabrics and took everything off the design wall. The orange (my favorite color) and a few prints had to go
|I think it's time for a bigger design wall!|
My breakthrough came when I had the idea of lines traveling up the quilt through fields of color and prints. From then on it's been just putting the pieces together.
This makes sense doesn't it?!
The trickiest part is keeping my lines straight and keeping them aligned when they pass behind an object. I am hoping to move onto the second half of the quilt tomorrow!
