You might ask how it all ends in Disaster if I have a incredibly cute quilt to show for my efforts. Simple I got my quilt done and then I washed it. Well that does not seem so bad how did it all crash and burn.
I took my quilt out side to take pictures on the back lawn (I cant believe it is green already) I had a lot of fun and got some great pictures (more of them below) when all of a sudden I stop the above seam. I hate when I do this. I hate it even more when I don't notice it at a point that it could be easier to fix. My guess looking at it I must have when sewing my 2 triangle rows together had a seam that caught just barely on the edge. During the wash it fizzled out and wamo I have a hole in my quilt.
I have fixed bobo's in the past in various ways. The most horrible of which is just a bunch of ugly zig zags to hold my hole together and better was applique something cute over the hole (if you cant see it I am sure its not there) but heck what would look good with all of my triangles?
Any way with the pouting of my mess out of the way I want to show off my wonderful messed up quilt. The back looks totally amazing with the echo quilted triangles over my yellow minky back.
I toyed around with quilting the edges and keeping the triangles intact. But in the end I chopped them off. I leaned a lot from doing these triangles and will be making more of them.
