neon friesPosted: April 20, 2010
i made another mini quilt and i call it “neon fries.” cuz i’m artsy like that.
it’s the crookedest mini quilt i’ve made to date and i know why. i rushed it. normally i make a quilt top and put it aside for what? 6 months?, then come back to it, sew a back to the piece and finish it up. this time, in an effort NOT to procrastinate, i went ahead and sewed a back piece to it immediately, and it came out all wobbly and not square. i should just accept the fact that procrastination becomes me. it’s much better for my masterful works of art.
i like how the fries are all wobbly. i just don’t like that the quilt itself is not square. so i’ll just chalk this one up as homemade charm. when you squish it in a frame the crookedness shows up more. that’s why it’s necessary to layer cute little danish figurines in front of it and distract the eye.
