I tried and tried to get Max off the quilt so I could take a photo and everytime he just kept coming back - in the end I gave up. I have attached all four borders and have been busy auditioning fabrics for the corner whirlygigs. I love them and they are the reason I decided to make the quilt. I had already planned the exact pink fabric I was going to use. Of course, when it came time to cut out all the shapes and put them together, the pink I wanted did not work at all. I changed the pink, then added the yellow and then had trouble with the blue. I decided I was using that red whether it worked or not! I started appliqueing the pieces down and still felt there was something not quite right.
Thank goodness for my Friday Girls. After consultation with a couple of fresh sets of eyes, it was decided that the yellow I had used was all wrong - too solid. Jan's expertise found the right yellow for the job and it looks so much better. I then spent the afternoon unpicking all the yellow and recutting out all the shapes. Hopefully I will get them finished over the weekend.
Does anyone else have problems like this? Sometimes I can put the fabrics together and they look great and other times, I just can't seem to get it at all!!!
