Tokens of the Past: Nine Patch Reverie pattern and is one of many quilts in the pattern.) The little print is in a grid format.
When the top was complete, I knew there was something wrong....it was as if the background was psychedelic! It kinda whirled, and swirled, and made you dizzy.
So this sweet little quilt sat folded for about a year when I decided to have it quilted.
It looks just fine folded up, and no one will see what's happening in the crazy edges of the quilt. And....I think it's a perfect project to use some of those scrappy binding pieces I've been saving.
So....please learn from my mistake. Think about your background fabric and how it will be used in your chosen quilt. I use grid printed fabrics all the time, but never again as a single background in an on-point setting quilt. We learn something new everyday!
Quilt Archaeology quilt over the weekend. I'll be taking photos, and putting the finishing touches on the pattern tomorrow, and getting everything ready for you.
You will find everything you need to know about my new Quilt Archaeology right here on my blog.
