I have been working on a quilt for my porch. I used that new square-in-a-square cutting technique we talked about last week, and I cut enough squares to make about 4 quilts! I sewed up about 50 blocks and
put them in place on my design wall. It isn't at all what I had in mind. I think the value contrast is too sharp, and maybe there are too many unconnected fabrics of all colors in it.
Because this was a quilt intended for hanging on the wall outdoors (although shaded and screened), I used a real variety of fabrics including polyester and blends and some bottomweights. Cheap fabrics. Good fabrics. In other words, I can't just finish it up and sell it. It's definitely not a baby quilt, or I would finish it up and donate it to the shelter.
What do you do with ugly or boring quilt tops?
