First of all, I’d like to thank my encouragers out there. My last post expressed frustration with a BOM, and your comments have given me new courage to face it this week.
Still on the wall today:
Not sure if anybody noticed, but I did get the December tree standing upright! LOL!
And the map applique is now finished – it looks kind of lost in that ‘sea’ doesn’t it! I’m quite happy with the way it turned out within itself, but maybe it should be bigger??? What do you all think?
I’m test-driving this grey-green from my stash for borders and sashing – 1/2 inch sashing between the blocks, which would mean about 3/4 inch around the ‘sea’. Oh, maybe if I put the map square again and used sashing fabric to put it on point – would that make the map look less lost. And the more I look at it…..the map looks off-center……..because there’s more of Canada in the north-west than in the south-east. It really is exactly centered – I measured! So maybe some adjustment there would make a difference.
Opinions please!!! I need help! And my quilting group isn’t meeting again now until January.
Anyway – I’ll be linking to The Needle and Thread Network WIP Wednesday – head on over there in a couple of days to see what the rest of Canada is working on.
Happy designing! Blessings, Peg
