Sometimes, I quilt a quilt with a design that ends up looking a little different then what I envisioned. I quilted this quilt for my friends at Robert Kaufman for Quilt Market. But when I finished, all I saw were whale tails….can you see them??
Can’t see it??? Let me show you a closer view…
Since the quilt was pieced in strips, I was able to use them as guides for the quilting design. I opted for a gentle “S” shape that alternated directions.
It wasn’t until I finished it and took it off of the machine, that I realized that it looked like tails. I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing at all!! I really like how it looks….it’s just amazing how you can think you have one thing, but when you step back….you see a different thing altogether! Funny how that kind of thing happens…..
Here’s to some Happy Quilting for you this week!!
