This is my finished version of Block 3 of Cheri Payne's Baskets of Plenty sew-along.
I like it a lot and was feeling pretty pleased about it until I happened upon this photo of Block 3 in progress....
I really shouldn't do that -- shouldn't look back at the other options and compare. But I did and except for that big pink flower, I think I like this bird and his narrow perch better than in the finished basket.
Thank goodness I have more fabric and can remake this block if I choose. Thank goodness it's not a whole quilt and just one block. But then again, maybe I'll use the one I've already finished. I like it, just maybe not quite so much.
I've been enjoying and feeling challenged by Cheri's Baskets of Plenty sew-along. I notice that my blocks are much simpler than Cheri's -- she uses more pieces and I use less and sometimes simplify them. She uses wool for her applique and I use cotton. She has lots of experience, I have much less. We all start somewhere and go from there, from simple and easy to proficient and on to advanced and complex (if we choose). In the end, the most important thing is that I enjoyed the process (even if I may have felt challenged and/or frustrated sometimes) and I like what I've created. For you, too?
Have you ever changed your mind after you've finished a block and remade it?
