Work on my brother's Bookworm Gardens Memorial quilt continues. Even though I'll post one long process blog when the whole piece is finished.....here's a peak.
Perhaps you'll feel kinship with the ever present 'decision' dilemma. What's right? What's wrong? Am I forcing the design just so I can move the construction process along? We've all been there.
Today I had planned to sandwich the quilt, but even as I said goodnight to it on my design wall last night....I had an inkling that the balance was off.
Here's what I saw.......Yes, it looks unfinished.....but I thought that when I bead the rays of the sun, it'd all pull together. This morning I knew better!
Okay....I can fix that.....what if I cut the long strips into shorter lengths....leaving spaces between them? To see what that would look like...I cut pieces of white fabric and positioned them along some of the strips. Again, I tried to talk myself into calling it....THE END.....but nah......it still wasn't right!
Sure I wish I could move onto the quilting....but getting it right is the first goal.... Always remind yourself....quilt making doesn't have to be a sprint.....there's nothing wrong with treating as a marathon!
