but how do you avoid it when you are unsure which route to go down?
I have got a few things done since my last post but not much. I delivered this quilt yesterday to the local quilt group. They pieced it, I marked rough lines for the spines of the feathers, then quilted it. I'm not sure what the plan for it is, maybe for a little raffle or to donate for a cause.
As much as I liked the poppy in the middle of these shapes, I couldn't bring myself to use a bonding method of applique on one of my quilts. So today I tried this simple flower but even with toning the inside edge of the dark red, I'm not happy. I considered some sort of weaving of the various reds and greens but haven't gone down that route.
