The problem with blogging something, is that once you have shared it you feel compelled to carry it through even if you are not feeling it and just want to abandon the whole thing. I know if I was a retrospective blogger this wouldn't be a problem, but I am rarely that organised.
That is how I am feeling about my last post. The process was fun and I got stitch with my Gelli Plate printed fabrics. I have learnt that even though they are ordinary acrylics rather than fabric paints, they still work really well because the Gelli Plate allows you to get a thin layer of colour on. It is fine to stitch through and doesn't stiffen up the fabric too much. So that is good.
However, once I started to quilt and stitch I just decided that the pieces were simply ugly, and just because you can get lots of layers and colours going on, it doesn't mean you have too.
I have played around with the stitching, using wool and adding hand stitching.
I have even thought about adding text with some new paint pens that I want to try out and if I can think of some word other than BLAH!! to write on these I might just do that.
Other options would be to paint over them with block colours, or cut them up into A.T.C. all of which means more work.
OR I could just throw them in the bin, which is what a friend of mine did recently with a baby quilt that just wasn't working out. It caused a bit of controversy I can tell you, but it freed up her head to get on with other things, and I think that is what I need to do.
Have you ever thrown pieces away?
