One of the things I love about quilting is if I don't like the way a quilt turns out, I can change it. With an antique quilt as inspiration, I made this straight furrows log cabin with a piano key border. All those little pieces...all that work...and I didn't like it. The border was wavy and the quilt didn't lay flat. And frankly, it was a bit overwhelming. I let it sit for a while, but had to face the music and do something about it. Did I mention, I had already quilted it?
So as they say, when you have lemons, make lemonade. I cut off the binding and then carefully removed the piano key boarders (which fortunately only had quilting stitches in the ditch). I rebound what was left and ended up with this:
This one still needs to be quilted, but I am happy. Two quilts for the price of one.
