Not crazy about my results


I decided it was time to try and assemble my trees and I'm not really liking the results. I'm going to stop where I am now and quilt the small piece that's already assembled and save the other blocks for another time - maybe I'll come up with a better plan for joining them.

I'd like to try this again in the future but I may need to rethink and limit my color scheme....keep it scrappy but pick just a color or two to work with. I did have a lot of fun making the trees - they may even show up in other projects.

I hear you about having some limits, that is my hardest part. I like what you have done with the trees...it looks really good!

The group of trees you have sewn together already look great...id work with those, and like you said, leave the other trees for another project :)
maybe sticking with something smaller, will be more inspiring!

Keep going...it looks great!

It's an adorable little quilt, lots of character. now when you do something with the other blocks you'll have two great quilts.

Thanks! The small top is growing on me and I'm looking at quilting options now.

I love the trees! I also like the mix of colors. I'm sure they'll all be great.

Personally, I don't see a problem with any of your trees! But there's nothing wrong with having two little quilts instead of one bigger one either :- ) I've learned that creative projects go through the same awkward or even ugly adolescent stage that kids go through. We just have to hang in there with our vision of the finished product in mind and let them develop on their own!

I like the trees & the colors & I can understand making a smaller project. And you're now ahead on another quilt.

I think your results are great! The colors and composition of the little quilt are very pleasing. For variety, maybe you could use the other set of trees as a border around a simple checkered center or combine them with a few house blocks.

I actually love these trees as you have them laid out here. But I'm sure whatever you come up with for these blocks will be gorgeous.

Sometimes blocks just won't play nicely together, and then at a later date, they decide to be friendly after all! Have you thought of asking a friend to come and play? Sometimes another pair of eyes can help. If you ask me, I'll easily get them to snuggle together as I think they're great!
