This week I finished the feathers in the center of my Christmas Table Topper. They are far from perfect - especially the first few - but I'm waiting until it's further along before I rip.
What can't wait to be ripped? The triangle.
This is the part of this quilt that I've truly agonized over, since it is going to show and it needs to be...well, if not perfect, then really good.
What I did is not good. It's not good at all.
The real problem here is the design choice. This Celtic knot design is the kind of thing that really has be spot on to work. Unfortunately, every little wobble shows up. Also, I'm not sure if a variegated thread is the best choice for this design. I'll be ripping this out and trying to come up with a more forgiving design to use in this space.
