I've had some Philip Jacobs fabric sitting around for about a year now. I really didn't like it when it arrived and didn't know what to do with it. So yesterday I started cutting it up to make a snowball quilt. I sewed for hours and at the end of it realised how disgusting the colours were that I had chosen. Not the Philip Jacobs but the pink and eggshell blue corners I had sewn around it. It really was awful. All hideously pink and baby blue.
As I slept on it, the family tiptoed around it in disgust.
Today was unpicking day. Most of the pink and blue had to go. It was replaced with browns, greens and denim blues.
The unpicking took hours. It was so wasteful but worth it. It's still not my favourite but at least I can look at it!
I hated all the waste from the chopped off corners so I've started sewing them together to add a border.
