|- a mess on the way to becoming a quilt back -|
Sewing together large pieces of fabric is so far out of my comfort zone that I almost backed out of a scrappy back for my Sunday Morning quilt. It feels like a puzzle but without the help of the photo on the box.
The first challenge was whether to keep the colors light or use medium tones. I thought if I used medium tones it would be like having two quilts in one, but I couldn't commit to the light and medium back to back so I've stuck with a lighter color range.
The next challenge was whether to use only a particular range of colors. The quilt has a wide range of light colors -- tints! -- in it.
Then the layout. Then the measuring, the cutting, the sewing.
I hope it lies flat when all the pieces are finally stitched together. The layout has been in progress for a few days. I hope the cutting and stitching will go quickly. Only a few of the pieces on the lower right have been sewn together and, of course, I may change my mind again about the fabrics and arrangement.
