Well it’s time to get back to the mystery. I had planned this for a wedding quilt for Hubby’s great nephew but I got very tripped up along the way.
I sewed along…I thought I was doing okay until about Christmas when I realized that I mixed colors….UGH. The parts where I put light purple I had planned to be pink. UGH. Then my sashing stars were suppose to be red. It would have all been okay if I had not screwed up. At that point, I was just frustrated and threw it aside. Then I picked it up and knew I had to make a few decisions. Was I going to remake the pieces? Did I really think that the extra time would be worth it?
As that point, the answer was no. So how do I salvage this?
For me, I decided no sashing. I’d put the blocks together as is.
Then I went through the pieces that I had left trying to decide what to do…..I put the neutral blocks around the outside. As is it’s now about 68″ x 68″…and I’m stuck. I had intended on making something bigger…but this is big enough. Hubby suggested a purple outer border and bind in purple. I’m leaning towards finishing it as is and binding it in purple.
What do you think?
As soon as I know what to do, I am going to keep on with this. It’s already a late gift. I don’t want it to be a lot later. Suggestions??
