Well, my Monthly goal
to finish this quilt has been a failure and a success. A fail, in that the quilt is not finished, a success in that pattern and fabric will leave the house next week and be gifted to someone else if i can find any takers.
The centre is more or less ok. It was the big pieced diamonds that were the issue.
I think that they distorted when i was focusing on making sure every point matched, unstitching and restitching.
From that point the other units wouldn't all join properly and sit flat.
I cut extra strips with the thought of perhaps replacing the big diamonds, but i couldn't picture how that would look and feared it would be awful.
In the end i felt the best thing would be to see if someone else could make a better job that me, or put the fabric to better use.
