You Can't Make a Silk Purse

Out of a sow's ear....but you can try, and I've been trying for 2 days to turn this top into something vaguely resembling something I might like.




I have learned a couple of lessons. I only like D9Ps that are done with two or three colours at the most, and my fabrics don't have enough contrast. I'm not sure I shouldn't have just cut my losses and sewn the top the way it was, but if nothing else, I like making work for myself. I'm planning on putting on a narrow inner border, then a wider outer border, in the sashing fabric.

I still don't like it, but I don't dislike it as much as I did before.

This arrived in my In-Box this morning and it pretty much sums up my feelings about winter.

You hit the nail square on ... not enough contrast. I still like the quilt.

Poor snowman he wants to play hangman but no one to play with as they are all inside the house. I'm stealing it. LOL

I like the quilt but I think you're right...it would be more striking with more contrast.

The snowman is cute but I can say that since I live in Florida! :)

I put my email address on blogger so I hope it fixes the no reply issue.
