MAKING DO~MAKING IT WORK!


 
I'VE BEEN WORKING ON A NEW QUILT FOR OUR
HOME FOR OUR CHRISTMAS DECOR THIS YEAR.
I USED AN ANTIQUE QUILT FOR INSPIRATION AND
AM GIVING IT MY OWN TWIST. I'M NOT SHOWING
THE FULL BLOCKS YET AS I AM CONSIDERING
DOING AN E PATTERN OF THE QUILT IN A FEW
WEEKS. WHAT I WANTED TO SHARE TODAY IS
WHEN I WAS ALMOST DONE APPLIQUEING
MY 5th BLOCK (THERE ARE SIX TOTAL)
I FOUND THIS LITTLE 3/8" TEAR IN THE
BACKING. IT WAS NOT GOING TO BE UNDER THE
APPLIQUE SO I HAD TO THINK ABOUT WHAT TO
DO. I KNEW I DID NOT WANT TO START OVER AND
MAKE A NEW BLOCK. SO AS NOT TO WASTE MY
TIME AND THIS BLOCK I DECIDED TO MAKE DO
AND COVER THE SLIT WITH A TINY BIRD.
 
 
I DIDN'T WANT IT TO STICK OUT AND TAKE AWAY
FROM THE RED APPLIQUE OF THE BLOCK SO
I DID IT IN A NEUTRAL. YOU CAN SEE IT BUT IT
DOESN'T STICK OUT LIKE A SORE THUMB!
SO WITH A LITTLE INGENUITY I'VE
FIXED MY QUILT BLOCK AND ADDED A BIT
OF WHIMSY TO MY QUILT.
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI
