So, I wrote a post a while back about one of my UFO’s with issues. Some of the blocks that had been stored in a zip-loc bag for an extended period of time (years) had sort of degraded. It only seemed to affect the black fabric and it was only those that were stored in closed zipper bags.
I had lots of great suggestions on how to solve the problem. I thought I could put it together and then just hang it up as a wall quilt. This was to be my plan, which unfortunately fell apart (along with the quilt). Dang it. I put a couple of rows together without issue, however, when I went to sew the two rows together, my plan fell apart, literally.
So, when the first seam of a pinwheel came apart, I got this brilliant idea that I would just top stitch all the pinwheels down. Nope, that did not work either. Seem pulled apart anywhere there was stitching. I knew it would never survive being quilted in any way even if I managed to get it all together.
So sadly, I had to say goodbye to this quilt. There is no saving it. RIP. There is a reasonable amount of the rainbow batik left. Maybe I will make a small wall hanging version. Who knows?
I know the big eclipse was last week, but I kept forgetting to post my eclipse photo. It was only when I put the eclipse glasses over my camera lens did I actually get photo that you could tell was an eclipse.
