This post should be called “The Seam Ripper: My Best Friend”. I’ve never used a seam ripper as much in one project as I did today. At least we are close buddies now.
I was asked for my artistic opinion from someone the other day. When they asked, it was for a simple project, just to get some idea how to display something. Well, I highly doubt they knew what they were getting into when they asked me, Mrs. I’m-Addicted-To-Quilting.
What started out as a simple project worked itself into two quilt square.
But, they were simple and easy to assemble. I cut one day and quilted the next. Then BOOM! I was done.
Simple and elegant.
The center square is a simple cream with gold flecks, just right to match the other fabrics with the golden stars and spots.
As you can tell, there is a theme which ties into the secret second half of the project. A secret I can’t divulge just yet.
Today I’ll hand these over to the secret patron who asked for my simple opinion.
I hope they don’t mind that I took some liberties and kinda went a different direction.
Urg, I can see some puckering of the center square. I’m wondering if my tension is not right and causing it to do that.
Per usual, I have my complaints. My cutting was off (only I could really tell) and my sewing required more than one seam to be ripped and restitched. Because it’s a gift and not being used as a quilt but to be displayed, I really wanted/needed the seams to align as best as possible so I could just leave it as I have for past quilts.
