Everything I sew lately needs to be ripped out. Really. I can't help but laugh at myself.
Here is my latest project in need of a fresh start:
This is a panel I bought to learn hand quilting on. Obviously that didn't happen :) Now I'm just trying to get it done so I can take it off my UFO list.
You can't see it, but a bit farther down on the fabric is the Nativity scene, some Wise Men and Shepards; all the usual Christmas crowd :) Oh, and the dove fabric is the backing.
I don't like the white thread I used above, there is just too much contrast between it and the darker colors. I'm not sure what to use in its place, maybe gold or invisible?
The pattern has me stumped, too. I tried to outline the important figures, and just meander all over the rest, but I don't like how it turned out. I tried this mainly because it just seemed wrong to stitch through the Baby Jesus :)
Then again, maybe I'll just sandwhich this with fusible fleece and forget quilting it altogether.
Well, I won't be doing any more sewing until I finish all my ripping ( I still have my BOM to rip out). Tomorrow I'll be sitting by a sunny window with a cup of coffee and a seam ripper...
Happy Quilting to you, and may your seam ripper gather dust!
