Yes, sometimes even if you have worked hard on producing a piece, it’s just not right. I kind of knew it as soon as I had it quilted, but I tried fooling myself.
Nope–this variegated thread and the random pattern just made me twitch every time I looked at it.
There was nothing to do but submit to the inevitable and rip it all out.
And the piece is about 40″ long, so there is quite a bit to rip. Sigh!
But as every stitch comes out, I feel a bit less twitchy. It’s the right decision.
And those little holes that are left? Not a problem. Spritz a little water, steam iron a bit and it will be good to go again. I think I need to try a metallic and a more repetitive pattern.
In the meantime, I’ll rip some more stitches out. Sigh…
