New Pattern #13
is God Bless This HOME.
I started with some green fabric, some perle cotton thread & a Tiny Dresden plate.
With so many options though
come so many opportunities to second guess myself!
& third guess…
When photographing a finished quilt for a pattern cover it makes all the difference in the world sometimes.
As I started stitching I knew the thread color wasn’t right.
What looks good in person, doesn’t always show well in a photograph,
that’s why I’m constantly taking pics to discern my progress.
But maybe the addition of the fused letters would help?
I finished the embroidery even though I was pretty sure this wasn’t “it”.
Maybe changing the Tiny Dresden plate fabric would help.
The letters needed to be darker, so I started with my pigma pen.
It helped the letters, but not enough to suit me.
Perhaps another Tiny Dresden plate color would help?
I started over using black perle cotton thread.
At this point I wasn’t sure if the orphaned Tiny Dresden plate was “it”
or if I just thought it was so I wouldn’t have to make another…
It was “it”.
This one is just too dark.
I don’t remember why, but I made a new plate.
I think I toyed with the idea of making the center dark instead of cream.
And then there were half-square triangles.
Meet God Bless This HOME.
Such a long story for not so big a quilt
which by the way is available on my website.
Just 1 more new quilt pattern to show you.
