I would never do this to a customer quilt. LOL
You know I pieced this top a LONG time ago….and I LOVE the fabrics. They are a mix of Kitty Yoshida’s line called “City Girl” I think…..and also a cosmo Cricket line. It was a free pattern that came out with the line called “City Blocks” I knew it would be an easy enough pattern to complete…and I think I got the fabrics on sale at the time.
I wanted a quick quilt that I could finish up in an evening. I made every mistake on this quilt I think?
I didn’t have an idea of what I was going to really do until I loaded it….I should have loaded it sideways for what I did..which made it all the more painful for me …all the starts and stops. UGH! I used a variegated thread…It was a mistake. The thread is all the right colors but I think it would have been better if I used a light brown. I think this particular quilt would look WAY better with an all over type of design like swirls…instead I decided to pratice feathers. There are several different types of feathers and ways in which to complete them..I have not mastered every technique and I can’t do that on a customer quilt. So I thought I would practice on my own…a sacrificial top. The ribbons in the striped sashing…all wrong. Let’s just call it like it is…LOL.
So this CUTE ….top that I pieced has been ruined by poor quilting decisions. Oh well. It happens..I don’t like it when it happens ..but I am SUPER glad it happened on my own quilt. It’s not a complete loss….honestly It still has a charm and it served a purpose..it is by far not the ugliest thing I have ever made..and I will still find a special home for it.
So here’s to a “Sacrificial City Block”
