Finished up my blocked September quilt on lost and found edges and sent it off for feedback from EB.
I did have some concerns. Are the lost edges of the wind turbines lost enough? EB had said that I should have fewer windmills than I had in my sketch. So is 3 the right number and are they in the right place?
This is my feedback from EB.
“I think this looks quite stunning - I like those little beady eyes on the oil pumps!! maybe they're thinking the wind pumps are creeping up on them! let's hope! While, as you note, the lost edges in the windmills are not that much lost, they do fade softly into the back ground...and also your foreground really has a lot of disappeared edges too. I like the little white dots! If they are pin heads - you're going to have to stitch French knots or something!! because they do add to the design!
I think it's balanced out very well now..and there are no more changes that you need to make.”
EB sure hates when the pins we are using stand out in the blocked quilt! HAHA..beady eyes indeed! She knows exactly what they are. I know that she has commented about quilts blocked out by others in the class and their pins. This is the first time she has said something about mine and I have used these pins before!
What do you think? Do I need to have French knots? My first thought it to reject that notion because what are they really in terms of this scene?
