This will never be a show quilt, though the quilting will take all the effort of a show quilt. There are so many places where the points don’t match. I really don’t know what I had in mind when I made this top. It’s hard for me to believe that I was ok with leaving the points the way they are on some of these blocks. Could be that I went back and tried to fix them and gave up. I don’t have a clue. So, it’s merely a practice piece and I’ve probably made it harder, if not impossible, to make it look right by choosing to do my circles in the outer border that isn’t a definite width — the width varies.
I made all the registration marks and marked feather designs on the ecru portion that is inside the pink border. I should probably not mention Ronda’s name in the rest of my posts because I don’t want my quilting to reflect badly on her but she has been a tremendous help with wrapping my brain around how she does those fantastic circles. Check out her blog for new pictures.
There’s a little voice in my head saying . . go back and fix those points but there’s another voice saying . . those circles aren’t going to work so don’t waste time worrying about the points. Hmmm . . which voice will win?
First, I have to get to the car wash and get these Kansas City bugs off my windshield. Tomorrow the Honda goes to the shop in Joplin for a new air conditioner and I will be so happy to have cold air again!
