“No matter how far you have gone on a wrong road, turn back”- Turkish Proverb
I started on my final Farm Fresh baby quilt about 2 weeks ago. Inspired by this updated chevron design by Shea Henderson of Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio I began making 96 HST with the remaining pieces of Farm Fresh by October Moon for Riley Blake that I had.
Blocks were pieced and trimmed.
Arranged with the help of my husband.
Then sewn together incorrectly. I thought about ripping it out and fixing it, but then decided to press on thinking it was “design” intervention. Our newest addition, Dora, seemed to think it was fine.
After using what batting I had and assembling it into a patchwork (making it work), basting begun.
One chevron quilted and I was done for the day.
Thinking overnight about it, I decided was not thrilled with the overall look of the top. The color balance, the patchwork look of some chevrons but not all.
So I am settling in with my seam ripper, Harry Potter, and copious amounts of coffee and taking it all apart and going back practically to the beginning.
I have figured out a much better HST design and will be busy sewing it all back together tomorrow while the hubs is in class.
