So, I made a Turning Twenty Again quilt for a livingroom throw, and decided to do some FMQ. I have stippled and free-formed designs before (smooth, organic stuff like leaves, and swirls) but this time I decided to use a template and do a more formal design in the bigger squares and rectangles.
Its wobbly and kind of icky looking. I couldn't stay on the lines as well as I wanted so the circle bits look lopsided and the fancy design has some bobbles in it.
I have only done 3 or 4 squares with the design, and I am considering ripping it out and going back over with something else.
The stiches look small and hard to rip out...I'm not sure I could do it well.
I'm not sure what to do...just keep going and have a wobbly design, or rip it out and try for something better.
And, if I do get it ripped out without hurting the fabric, will the previous stick holes go away?
My motto: If you can live with it, leave it. If not, I rip.
The holes should close themselves up, especially when washed.
Many times I rip and mess it up. I made a huge error on one of my newest creations. Everyone thought that I did it on purpose and liked it. I just keep silent and smile.
I do rip out something totally hideous.
What a secret to smooth stopping and starting? Most of my bobbles occur when I slow to move it in different directions at a point or sharp turn...
