So 9 months later, I looked at it. The colors are beautiful, but the layout of the stuff...well, how do I put this nicely? Yuck, maybe? Ok, it wasn't going back to the design wall, so the choice was trash can or face lift. I began to remove the little mushroom things at the bottom. Then the woven weed looking thing came off, too. I left on one of the little jelly fish at the top, and re-arranged the elements I would keep. .
Next I added a bunch of things from my stash
Rocks, a few fish, some corals, couched cording, and a couple of thread painted things....I call it a face lift. Now the colors pop, and there is an overall balance. I'll get it bound and ready to return to SP at guild meeting next month. Won't she be surprised!
Insight: Give a UFO a face lift, or a re-do. If it is still not what you want, give it away or find the trash can. Just don't stick in in the closet!
I am still getting emails about the String Me Along quilt. It is up on the wall and is not going anywhere. And yes, I will do a table runner soon and provide measurements and details. So glad everyone enjoyed it.
