Unpicking




Sometimes a quilt design idea that looks good in EQ just doesn't work successfully once I convert it to fabric. Stitching blocks is the only way to see how the pattern translates.

After making a dozen of my current blocks, I've decided I just don't like one half of each block. Just as well I have my trusty pirate friend to help me with the unpicking.

I am happy to do the unpicking because I know the amended blocks will make a happy quilt. And that's important!

Erica, the fabrics are gorgeous as is your unpicker assistant! I am sure your patience will be rewarded and a beautiful quilt piece will emerge - all in good time.
