|"Better with Cheddar" from scraps -- 18-1/2 x 24"|
I wrote about the "Pink Patches" quilt in my last post, my version of a quilt in a Kathleen Tracy book.
|"Pink Patches" -- 18 x 22 inches|
The "Better With Cheddar" doll quilt is made from scraps from a small quilt that I wrote about here and here in 2010. There were just too many diamonds and strips to throw away.
I'm rethinking the two horizontal tan strips. I've already made them narrower than originally cut, but I don't think they look like they belong. Right now the two strips seem to scream "HERE WE ARE. LOOK AT US!"
Three options -- (1) Leave the two tan strips where they are. (2) Make the two strips narrower, (3) Sew one narrow tan strip on each side of the shapes on the ends, before I add the dark cheddar borders. Opinions? I always appreciate outside eyes and suggestions.
