With the quilt tossed across the longarm so I can see the overall effect (thanks Darcie), the fan quilting in the sashing doesn’t seem to be a disaster.
I should mention that this is a donated HeartStrings top pieced by Barbara in FL. Hopefully she won’t be disappointed in my quilting on this one. By the way, I don’t consider myself a perfectionist but when I do something, I want to do it well – not just OK.
In general, I try to keep my moodiness from spilling over into the blog but as you can tell, sometimes I fail.
Very pretty quilts!!!!
I think it looks absolutely fine! You are too critical on yourself.
I think it looks really good. Someone will be so happy to have that. And look at your list. You have six done already this month.>Diane in Alaska
I think we are our own worst critics most of the time. I’ve never yet seen a quilt that the Baptist fan doesn’t look good on. I think it looks just great on this one. What would you have done instead? I can’t think of any treatment that I would like better than this. You may consider yourself only average but your work looks just no great to me.
Your work has always impressed me. Not only the quantity … the quality is exemplary to me.>>And I am still whining about finishing a little tiny piece!>>Please give yourself permission to be human.
I think baptist fans fit just about any quilt. So I thought it was perfect!
I LOVE IT. It looks great and you always make my mediocre tops look great. As they say in New York “fagetaboutit”>Thanks………….
Now that you can see the whole picture, the BFs blend in on those borders just fine and it looks great.>>As for your bad mood days – we all have them and we’ve all shared them with our readers – that’s what makes us real.>>Hope Chesty is improving every day.
Hurray!>>Someone is going to be overjoyed with their quilt! 😉 (Big picture….)
It’s a lovely quilt Mary, really. And the recipient will be greatful.
The quilt is lovely. You did a great job!
Good Heavens! My first thought was- “the quilt is lovely”! I see others had the same thought 🙂 You may use the same design on the quilt I sent.
It really is wonderful!
Really, I think that in the big picture, baptist fans go with just about anything!!! Sometimes when we look at our work close up, and just a small segment at a time – we aren’t as happy as when we see the big picture!!! Looks great to me Mary.>Cheers!>Evelyn
I just love the movement that the BF’s give to this quilt. I think I’m going to have to try a Baptist Fan on my next quilt…you’re an inspiration!>>Michele in TN
