I had to play catch-up after Thanksgiving with the clues as I had about a 10 day late start. Pushed myself rather hard to finish all the clues, I might add, but finish them I did. You see I wanted to be all ready prior to the finale that way I'd be off and sewing when the big reveal came. If you're sewing along, you know it came on New Year's Eve. And...
OMG! I hate it!
To me it is a jumbled mess, the fabric choices are all wrong, and the sashing, oy! And I used the same fabrics that BH did so it's not as if I used a dark rather than a light. The ironic thing is, I didn't really care for the color choices but figured I couldn't go wrong using what the 'designer' did. Ha! Did I mention this is the very first Quiltville MQ I have ever done?
What to do. What to do.
I finished sewing the 25 blocks today. (::sigh:: I even committed to the full version, fool that I am!)
Here's one of them.
And the rest. It's not too bad without the intended sashing. I know many people are leaving that off and doing solid sashing to calm things down a bit.
Auditioning the busy green sashing. Whew! I think the blocks just disappear when the sashing is added. And I somehow have missed the name, where's the illusion? I've tried to like it but it just doesn't work. And those black squares the way they don't line up with the black HST just keeps annoying me. But I hate the thought of having these quilt parts leftover if I don't use the sashing. ::sigh::
I don't know what to do. Finish it and be done, or come up with another way that I can live with?
Any ideas? You'll just have to excuse me now while I go have a good cry.
