Lots of things going on this week. I am designing a new quilt. This is what is on my design wall at this point. Each blue block will have the orange/yellow/red fabric in the center. The blocks are 8 inches and the orange squares will be 4 inches. I know that is not the sizes of the orange squares in the photo. I was trying out different sizes to see what I liked. I think larger is better. These squares will be fused on top of the blue squares. I will be using some of the fabrics that I had printed at Spoonflower for the orange squares. The Spoonflower fabrics are of oil rig/coal plants.
I finished quilting "Tequila Sunrise." I am so disappointed that after more than 30 years as a quilter I can be so terrible at things sometimes. The vertical lines are too wiggly and with the high contrast it really shows. I think the problem in part is the excessive quilting and the distortion caused. Should have done less quilting. I am thinking of using this quilt to cover some composition notebooks so that it does not go to waste. The other thing I thought about is to cut it into squares and sew them back together with a zigzag. I saw this on a quilt show. You butt the squares together and stitch them.
