See that wrinkle? I haven't decided if I am going to rip it out. That entire block is very sketchy. I knew as I was doing it I was totally not focusing and not taking the time to make sure the quilt was in the right place to ensure wrinkles and wobbly bobbly lines would not happen. I might leave it in to remind me to just stop when I get tired. . . and this is going to be used as a background for taking pictures of blocks - I can hide that square haha I also learned that I really do not like doing micro pebbles. . . or micro anything, I get bored and lose focus. Maybe bigger pebbles would be better. . .
And, I tried McTavishing for the first time.
Lastly, I made one more block for the fractured log cabin quilt. I put a more contrasting fabric in this one after the light yellow middle square. I think this one looks much better :)
|Amazing how many wrinkles accumulate between the design wall and the patio table!!|
Here's the picture of the other one, so you can see there really is a difference in the way the blocks look with that one different strip of material :)
I'm also contemplating mixing this up a bit. . . Of course I am haha I think I might use different blocks between these fractured blocks. . . Not sure, I think I need to make all of the fractured blocks and then do one of the other that I am contemplating to see how it looks in real life. Looks cool in EQ7. . . we'll see :) Stay tuned, I'm hoping to get the log cabin blocks done today. Then I'll make a few of the others, take a picture and see what you all think!
