Another UFO I dragged out:
Stack n Whack (for non-quilters, it is a method of stacking the fabric exactly on top of each pattern repeat to make a kaleidoscope effect). I bought this fabric 10 years ago, and still love it. This is one of my favorite stack n whack quilts, and I have made MANY.
So why did I put it away to become a UFO?
See how NOTHING MATCHES??? the points dont match where I put the stacked blocks next to the blue/white blocks. sigh…. I hate when this happens. So I ripped the blocks apart, redid it and it STILL was fricken off. I REALLY hate when THAT happens. So it became a UFO.
Fast forward a few nine years. I decided to proceed anyway and make it a dog blanket. Cept we have no dog. A cow blanket? nah…..
So in putting it together, I had decisions to make. Because I dont like the way this looks on the side at all. The design looks unfinished. Look along the right side to see what I mean:
Ok, so here’s a plan:
Sometimes you need to think outside the box for design solutions. Often, a design comes about because you are disguising a flaw of one kind or another. So here is what I am doing to cover up the major mistakes in unmatched points my design solution:
So here it is done. Well, not done, because I ran out of rick rack. I need 5 more pkgs to finish it and move it out of my UFO pile to the cabinet for quilting.
Steve and I have had some flu bug this weekend. He still is not good, but I feel MUCH better, thank you very much. Hopefully he will bounce back tomorrow.
Hope everyone else had a great weekend.
