Plan B...Plan C...mixing straight and wiggles

Well, the road to Starred Swoon hit a few bumps in the quilting stage.  Indecisive might be the best word for this quilts journey.  I wanted to try straight stitch quilting because it's so modern and so well done on much of what I see out there.
partially completed Plan C on the back

Plan A: Two diagonal straight lines later it was seam ripper time.  So I thought, wiggle lines along the seams instead and committed to that.
I ripped them out during SBAMQG meeting

Plan B: Not right either but since I wasn't about to rip out all of the rows I decided to go for combining the two.

Plan C:  insert straight lines between the wiggly ones and that's were I'm at.  Not hating it. Not loving it. Charging ahead.

My vision of the mix shows pretty successfully on the back solid flannel picture below but unfortunately doesn't translate as well for me on the front of the quilt.

What's a girl to do. At least I tried something new! Can I get a Whoop Whoop?  Linking up to Diane at  from the blank page who encourages us all to make our visions reality puckers and all.  She has also started a Master Link linky party page - brilliant.
Ignore the "off" green shade in this picture


  1. I think it's super pretty! Throw it in the wash and see how you feel after that. :D

  2. Well it might be plan C... but I really like it!

  3. I like it too, but hey, sometimes we learn the most in situations like yours where we aren't totally thrilled in the end. You could do what I have done in the past with quilts that cause me much frustration... put it in a dark closet somewhere for a few months after you finish, and when you later bring it out, you'll love it!

  4. I have a feeling you'll like it just fine when it's done and even better yet once it's washed! Personally, I like it!
