Here's what I said about it at the time:
"It's very busy I'll admit, much busier than I would usually go for,
but I think I kind of like it in a not-very-me sort of way."
Um, I might have to eat those words. I've had plenty of time to consider this quilt top as it was left aside due to some unanticipated quilting commitments I took on in late July. But the more I looked at it the less I liked it. Just too busy for me and although I thought I could get over it, I couldn't. Has that ever happened to you?
My plans originally had been to make this quilt and donate it to Bee Blessed so I really didn't want it to go to waste. I thought that maybe if I could re-work it a little then it could possibly become a quilt that someone could love.
So, a little deconstruction back down into the original block elements, a little bit of biscuit coloured sashing and scrappy binding and Swoon is now a quilt I would actually be quite happy to keep. It no longer gives me a headache trying to work out where to rest my eye amid the mass of clashing pattern, and I am happy that Bee Blessed will have a better quilt to share with someone who needs it.
