Failure

Yesterday I did a total of two squares and I don't like either one of them. Well that's a little lie. I like the square on the left, I just don't want to quilt all 64 of them. There are a lot of lines in this quilting. Which means a lot of turning the quilt under the machine, what a pain!
The square on the right, just doesn't have any punch. Also I did it free motion, so as not to have to turn the quilt. It just looks bad.
So it's back to the drawing board. I may just add fewer lines to the left block.

In other news, I'm an Aunt again! My niece had her second child last night, Cameron. And you all know what this means, more baby quilts. I still need to get one more done for Cameron. I'm a slacker, I know.
So I'll be busy this weekend, quilting or cutting up some blues for Cameron, but busy as a B.

Take care, and have a wonderful weekend, Brandie

How about a take on the baptist fan quilting? It's quilted arcs and you can do it freehand. Plus it will suit the traditional fabrics and mimic the handle arcs? Just a thought.

I cannot tell what you don't like. I think it looks great.

Congratulation Auntie!! I really love both squares of quilting. Looks fab, but I understand what you mean by having to quilt a lot of lines. You'll be sick of quilting the lines half way through. Anyway you quilt it will be gorgeous!!
