Sometimes I think that I've created a brilliant quilt
in my mind's eye.
Then, when I actually get to working on it...
well...it just doesn't work out!
I had the lovely JUNE
make me this collage of
my mom, daughter and myself:
I wanted to make a 'Generations' quilt,
Kind of medallion style.
I started with a simple brown border:
Then I selected some calico's and florals for the rest of the borders.
And, guess what??
I hate it!
Don't get me wrong,
I still LOVE the collage and the concept.
And I like the colors I chose.
But, I really dislike that triangle border.
This quilt should be something more delicate.
More curves than diamonds or triangles I think.
So what did I do?
Cut off the yucky border to start again.
When I am better at making my own designs.
As for the ugly border?
I can't stand UFO's so...
for me, it's better to just cut it up and use it!
If it were a sheet of paper,
I could wad it up and throw it away.
But, fabric is too expensive for that!
So, expect to see it in an unlikely place soon.
Let me know when you recognize it!
What do you do when you can't stand one of your projects?
