|The prize - McKenna Ryan art quilt kit|
I continue sewing away on the Fern Creek Sampler.
All the rows are now complete and pressed and not one of them is the same length as any other! My new storage racks have assumed a duel purpose as hanging/design wall additions. Pretty nifty.
See the second row on the left? Those two light triangles really bothered me and that row was super wavy. That's the fabric that was sent in the kit but I don't like it. So, after this picture was taken I decided to take it apart and put in two triangles that were more on the tan side and hopefully correct that wave. Well... easier said than done. I got the tan triangles in, no problem. But that wave just got worse and worse. The more I fussed the worse it got. There are a lot of bias edges to deal with and this is not really quality fabric here and I think when I originally made this row I may not have been as exact as I may be now. Anyway, this entire row now resides in the trash can! Sometimes you just have to let things go bye, bye and move on. Just like a bad relationship we were not jellin' and this could only end in heartbreak. I'm starting to put this together with black connecting strips as called for in the pattern. We'll see how that goes.
Until next time,
