    Another blue and white one

    I had this one pieced and partially quilted when I decided I did not like the quilting. So I took it out and started over. I will not do that again any time soon!

    It turned out so well! I am curious what it was about the quilting that you did not like. The thread color the design? I am currently free motion quilting one of my quilts on my domestic machine. I am not happy at all with how the quilting is turning out and am struggling with the idea of taking it out and starting over. I don't like the thread color or the design, yet I have many hours into this. Thinking that maybe when it's done it will look better to me so every day I keep going.

    Well done! It reminds me of the Blue Willow China that my parents have collected since I was young.

    I had originally quilted with swirls, but just didn't like the way it was turning out. So I switched to flowers and leaves and I like it much better. But I do have to say, I got really tired of this quilt, even though I do like the way it finally turned out.

    Wow, you must have really disliked the quilting to take it all out...but it turned out beautifully in the long run.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Beautiful quilt and I think I would have just had to live with it. Although, I do remember now that I ripped out quilting on a quilt I made many years ago (I didn't like how it was quilted and it was bad; it was quilted by someone else) and it was a pain and it was just straight stitching. Anyway, your quilt is lovely and love the blues and the pattern.

    Sue, I have be there. I remind myself that done is better than perfect. I didn't like the quilting on the hanging gardens quilt I just finished. But I went ahead and finished it that way. After it was washed it looked a lot different and in time I will forget why I was so unhappy about the quilting. We always judge ourselves too harshly!
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    Love your quilt and you did a nice job on the quilting. Sorry you had to pick out the first quilting but hope you are happy with the second time around quilting.

    I guess that's why they call it the blues...

    Thanks for sharing. I have ripped out quilting before but not so much. It was hard and I was quite frustrated. I hope you can set it aside for a while and then discover it again.
