I did the pink/red heart chenille quilt last month. One layer of red inside 6 layers of pink flannel. Turned out great.
Now the second baby shower-the mom has a music theme, so I think, I'll put a piano keyboard in it. Same thing, 6 layers of blue, 1 layer of black & white for the keys. TOTAL DISASTER!! The white totally fades out in the baby blue and then when I took the picture, I can see that it's not even straight in the quilt.
I'm not throwing it out-so I need a fix. Any ideas? I tried stitching regular thread on top of the chenille and it just disappears in the texture. The last picture is some yarn couched on top. That might work. I think I can even "straighten" it out optically by outlining where I want the keys to be rather than where they are. That plus a Sharpie might do the trick!
Or maybe I'll just clip all the black and white out and just leave it all blue???
Come on ladies:I've seen some great fixes on this board-HELP!!! I'll be sure to post the fix when I do it too!
This is the one that worked.
What a bloody mess! Raider doesn't even like it!
This is a sample piece with a piece of yarn couched on top of the chenille.
