Off on a Tangent

Well - you know how they say a quilt can talk to you?   Well, this one has taken me on a wild ride..........

Here's how it looked in May........... its a Sue Garman pattern, called "Sarah's Revival".   I had one more row to put on the bottom.  But then I got occupied with other things, and it sat on the shelf.  

And then I started to hear it talk..............  the middle blocks just weren't quite right - not quite centered, not quite well done..............  So I decided to take them out............

And then I decided to take out the red sashing.............
So I took it all apart.
Then it told me it wanted to have the blocks set on point !!!!

So - here it is now......  I'm gradually rebuilding it on point, and as a rectangle instead of a square.

And with cream sashings..............

 
It looks really different, doesn't it ????  I like how the applique has room to breathe. 
 
Well, stay tuned, and we'll see what happens next............ 
 
this sure is fun.........
