Okay...I've started making an ugly quilt. No. Not on purpose. I "thought" it would be pretty...but it's not! Seriously! I liked the fabric...I liked the pattern. But as I'm sewing it together, I find I'm beginning to not like anything about it. And this is not the first time this has happened. I've had pretty fabric but when sewing the quilt together, find I hate the pattern; conversely, I'll love a pattern, hate the fabric! What to do?
This is the quilt in question (click on the photo and you'll see what I mean up close and personal!):
Just to clarify: I should have made it clear that there is an extra blue and white border, plus 3 more borders beyond that. I haven't cut them out yet because I don't want to waste fabric if I don't finish. Also, though the picture doesn't show it clearly, the yellow ribbon border actually yellow with a small white polka dot on it. (If and that's a BIG "if", I finish it, I'll post better pictures!) re-posted 6/17...8:20 pm
I'm just not loving it...I'm not hating it either. I guess I should say that I'm just not excited about it. I'm not sure if it's the fabric color choices or the pattern, but I don't know if I want to finish it! It's probably the pattern, because even though it's a perfectly gorgeous pattern...it's not me. But on the other hand, neither is the fabric. It's a "bit" tame. I tend to love brighter, louder colors...more pattern.
So...the question is: What would you do? Finish it? Stop now and start another that you really want to do? Throw it away? Put it away, hoping that you'll find it later and love it again? Finish it and give it away to your worst enemy? LOL!
On the bright side of my life...this is my new love!
For those of you who don't know...I love coffee! So, when William's girlfriend, Megan and I went to see 'Bama Girl, we went shopping and ended up at World Market. I bought each of us one of these ceramic coffee cups! I love it! I don't love paper coffee cups and am "trying" to be a little greener and I can take it into the sewing room and it doesn't get cold as quickly!
Hope you all have a great weekend (I'm starting early!!)
