Rubbish and more rubbish

The applique item I was making has gone in the bin. I feel so much better for doing so and better still, it didn't involve a hissy fit!!!

It went wrong right from the start with too thin a background material. A very light stiffener was added to compensate, making it too stiff. Once the squares were joined, after making yet another mistake, they didn't align properly. The decorative top stitching I wanted to do just highlighted these problems even more.

So back to the beginning and I am leaving applique behind for now and doing a simple quilt which I know how to do reasonably well.

Watch this space!

  1. Sorry that it didn't work out. I have seen some lovely appliqued quilts. Perhaps next time.

    God bless.

  3. Lol - I started a confetti quilt in the summer (appliqu├ęd circles onto squares) and that was the same - it didn't even make it into the bin, it's still residing at the back of my work table where I threw it in frustration xxx
