Let me explain what happened....because I do know.
Way back in "the day" (yes it was that long ago) when I started the kaleidoscope blocks I had a bit of a struggle but eventually got them to flatten out (or so I thought). I guess now it has been a couple of weeks ago, I added the borders and noticed they weren't flat but instead were a bit ripply (is that a word?). I thought maybe I could quilt it out because it wasn't too bad.
Well, while making Kaylah's bags, I was having problems with my machine but the problems would come and go. I just kept plowing forward. While trying to do simple straight line quilting on Callee's quilt, it was fine in the beginning and then it wasn't. Before I knew what was happening it was a hot mess. And then it was too far gone and we all know how I feel about ripping out stitches - especially in an entire quilt - the day before Christmas Eve!
There are more ripples in this quilt than a yard/meter of ruffle fabric
Let me give you some up close shots. I am very embarrassed by this but sometimes one must admit their mistakes in order to move forward. Additionally, there must be something that can be done with this.
Normally I am very hard on myself but oddly I am OK with this - I don't feel bad just ready to chalk it up as a hot mess and move on. I mean, we all make mistakes right?
So...here is what I need to know...what do I do with it? Before you answer, you need to know...I am NOT going to rip all those quilting stitches out. I have no problem cutting it up and using it for something else. I just don't know what. Any suggestions? I would love to set fire to it but I know there has got to be something to do with it. It is such pretty fabric.
