Mmmm, I was hoping to show a finished top to join the
Kaleidoscope of Butterflies link up, I've only completed the central
piece - and have a bit of a disaster on my hands.
You can probably see why in the photo below.
Two issues with this
a) my iron decided to spit out gunge on the cream fabric second row from bottom
b) the dark fabrics are showing through two layers of the cream by the seam lines,
in some cases.
I was extremely careful to trim away any excess knowing that it's so easy
to get a shadow effect, I should have used a heavier weight cream
fabric - lesson learned!
I am so cross with myself, I don't know whether I can bear to put
the border on! I guess I could quilt 1/4" away from the seam
which would hide any shadowing through.
My little companion cheered me up as we played in the garden
here she is against a backdrop of weeds and now just over one year old! Oops my
watermark has landed across her little white paws.
Off to join the link-up with
Have a happy weekend.
