After my post the other day, highlighting this - hopefully - last disaster of non-matching corner patterns,
... I pulled this quilt back out and fixed my mistake. Two unnecessary seams later, the top is complete. And it looks good. It's growing on me again.
[A little voice in my hand is whispering frantically that certainly many more things could go wrong with this quilt... I'm ignoring it!]
I do like the effect of the purple corners, it gives the quilt more dimension, no? Like someone took a purple triangle and shoved it between the light and green layers...
Haha, here are the middle wedges, when I had made the side borders too short... see, I can laugh about it now!
And the more I look at these wide open spaces, the more I'm drifting away from my vengeful stippling quilt-plan and am moving instead to diagonal lines through the "chain" and old-fashioned feather circles in the white, in white thread. I love the look of those, white on white, and I feel confident enough to try feathers like that on a proper quilt, yet still small-scale!
First things first though! Basting :)
I'll leave you with a fridge-magnet quote - this purchase was a direct result of some fun email-conversations about books I've had recently with my name sake from Bella Linguini. We both like Kurt Vonnegut books a lot, so this magnet caught my eye - though I'd never known before what the guy looks like :)
I think he sums it up very well...
