More Fixing

Remember this post? I have taken that quilt down to the individual quilt pieces. My next step is to trim things to the same size where needed. This quilt had lots of mismatched points. The biggest issue I faced was that the neutrals in the center were cut much smaller than the colored pieces.

I layed out the pieces and have been playing with the layout a bit. When I look back to the pictures of the original I realized there was an issue with the green on the corners that I had not noticed before. Basically it didn't turn the corner elegantly. I happened upon a solution.

I even changed the layout in the center a little so that everything matches to itself. I also have a fabric that I felt was a close match and will be cutting new neutral patches from it rather than trying to trim all the pieces to the same size. Some trimming is still needed but not as much as the original plan called for.




What do you think?

This looks like a good plan. I like the new layout.

Looks like a lot of work but worth it!
