It seems like I have been doing a lot of sewing in the past week. Here is what I have to show for it.
I had a crazy idea for the Color Commotion quilt, the one with the colored center squares. Turns out it was a hideous idea! Even though this batik contained all the colors in the blocks, once I sewed it on, I absolutely hated it.
Even Mark, who always gives me very good feedback, said, "Are you sure you like that?" at which point I knew I was on the wrong track! So I got out my trusty Jack the Ripper and took that border off, and added a solid black border. Whew. SO much better.
