Well, try as I might, I couldn’t get the spacing of the pieces to work . . . I really needed to use the placement I had originally marked.
I took the time to trim away some excess around the pieces and laid ’em out. Unfortunately, there was no empty space between the pieces.
I fused, then stitched all the pieces in place. This is what it looks like on my worktable as I begin safety pinning the top to the pre-quilted fabric beneath.
I’m not happy with it . . .
As I’ve been told by others, “Only YOU know what’s wrong with it, Raymond; it looks fine to me.” Well, it looks OK where the red and green strands appear to weave over and under each other, like here:
I don’t like what happens when the red and green strands cross themselves, like here:
There’s a little bit of white showing between the red shapes in the lower right, but I’d like a little more white showing and I’d like the white to show throughout the piece.
So, I’m gonna paint the space in. After I quilt the piece, I’ll take white textile paint and paint across the ends of the shapes where they butt up against another shape.
