This started as a Craftsy class project, the crosses are part of Elizabeth Hartman's class Modern Quilts. But when I put them on my design wall they just didn't look right, so I added some blank squares and a few more crosses. That looked better, but then the blank squares needed something extra, so I added the baskets. Then of course, the blank areas around the large crosses looked wrong, so I appliqued some flowers. Finally, I was happy with it.
Generally I'm pretty pleased with this quilt; I like the mix of modern with the old fashioned baskets and flowers. It's densely quilted, which took ages as I can only do a bit at a time since my wrist is still quite sort. I had planned to enter it into an exhibition, but there's a problem. It's not hanging straight. I measured it carefully and adjusted it before putting the binding on, but there's still a wave at the bottom. I don't imagine there's anything I can do to improve it this time, short of taking it apart which I'm not inclined to do.
But, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can avoid this another time?
