I have been steadily adding to my Wheel of Fortune Quilt, currently half-way around with green diamonds.
It is quite fun coming up with the patterns for each ring, and I love playing with dusty apple green fabrics.
One thing that has been bothering me has been the 2nd ring – the yellow squares.
The fabric I used was not the best quality, a bit too thin and too loosely woven, and I have not been 100% sold on the colour.
I am not quite at the point of unpicking, but I am certainly getting closer. I have been auditioning alternative fabrics. These are three different pale peachy fabrics I am considering.
This is the effect I am closest to settling on. As usual, a photo doesn’t quite capture the subtleties of colour, and the overcast conditions are making the colours of this quilt look more blah then they are in person.
If I do unpick, it will be a big step, because I have ironed away the stitching lines. I will have to redraw them on and hope for the best, a prospect that makes me nervous. I might just decide that the yellow is good enough, even though it is a little more see-through, a coarse than all the other fabrics.
Are you happy to unpick work that you did ages ago, just because you have changed your mind?
