Remember the book about the "Hungry Caterpillar" ?
Time to transform something ..........
I must admit I have not been at all happy with my "Beaded Curtains" quilt, and I do feel that with all the time/money/material invested in any project one should be happy with the result, yes????
I did so want the bright "beads" to float.
Looking back thru' my Kaffe Fasset books also re -inforced that I had wanted to try for a "no borders" kind -of -look to keep that vertical dropping/floating feeling.
(And I certainly didn't want an overall "purple" look to the quilt!! )
So........ I have spent most of today unpicking !!!!!!!!
I removed all of blue & mauve 1/2 triangle side borders & all the surrounding soft blue spotty borders.
Then I rumaged thru' my leftovers container & found more of the Riley Blake cream stripe AND, luckily, more of the KF white/yellow dot. But sadly none of it in biggish pieces.
So I made fabric out of what I had left. (If you look closely you will see some joining lines) I have an old vintage sheet that I will use for backing and the lovely KF stripe binding will, I think, just finish off the quilt quite nicely. I am v. happy with it now!!!!!!!
