Then this afternoon I noticed something that made me feel like pulling my hair out.
Did any of you notice?
Because some of the center blocks are clearly directional, I so carefully planned my border since it would hang in one direction only.
The leaves in the bottom point out from the center, towards each side.....
They went around the corners and continue UP each side towards the top....
(Yeah...that's my toe)
And then they were supposed to round the top corners and point IN towards the center.....
But this is what I noticed the this afternoon......
The birds are flying correctly..TOWARDS the middle. But the leaves on the right side were appliqued in the wrong direction.
Can you hear the gnashing of teeth going on here?
You of course know that I will have to remove the appliqued leaves and take out all of the quilting in that section of border, re-applique and re-quilt. If I don't it will drive me nuts!
Or should I say this is my "quirky" quilt?
After 21 months of work, I don't think so...........
I think I have to fix it.
Last night and today I've been working on other applique...leaves actually....on a long set aside Baltimore Album style project.
It may take a day or two before I start....but I will fix it.
Can you feel my pain?
(And before somebody points it out, I know the birds in the bottom border are flying towards the center..unlike the leaves...but it's my quilt and that's the way I wanted it....LOL. They didn't look right the other way).
