Look at it - acting all innocent and quilty, like it never gave me a moment of worry. It's a bit like a naughty child.
So it's all done. I should be feeling elated right? But I'm not. I don't know why. I'm just not loving this quilt. Sad sad sad.
I even relented enough to give it a pretty pieced back, even after all its wonky border mischief.
And some pretty straight line quilting around the diamonds.
I perhaps should have stuck with the dark purple stripes as borders on the front. But to be honest I got a bit tired of unpicking and resewing! Instead I planned to FMQ some awesome vine looking thing around the border in a nice coordinating green thread (umm mainly because I only have quality thread in green, pink and orange thanks to an awesome garage sale - hello 30 spools of Gutermans plus a handmade wooden spool holder for $20! Bargain!)
But my FMQ vine did not look like a vine. It looked like weeds. Covered in pesticide. Afflicted with some kind of weedy plague that looked contagious. To humans. It wasn't pretty. No photo evidence exists.
Instead I went hey! I haven't used barely any of these fancy pants stitches on my fancy pants machine - why not now?!
And look! It's a vine. A happy vine without pesticide or plague. Why reinvent the
Linking up a little bit early to TGIFF. Because I'm ready for it to be Friday. Plus the fabulous Fiona at Finding Fifth is hosting this Friday (say that five times fast) so be sure to pop over and join in!
Linking this up with the Festival of Half Square Triangles.
I may not be totally loving the final result, but I do love those HST squares! My fellow beehive members may not feel the same after I've nominated the block for this month! ;)
