Released From the Bone Pile Yippee !

Well.... Hallelujah !

Remember this piece ???  I found this photo on my Blog from September........ SEPTEMBER ??? OH MY...surely it wasn't that long ago.

there was lots left to do at this point................
I loved these corner feathers..............

 
But I really wasn't happy with the center...............that mess in the middle just doesn't look right at all........ way too formless for the rest of the center medallion.  oh yuck.  That stitching is way too dense to rip out..................
 
So it went in the Bone Pile.
The Bone Pile is where stuff goes that isn't working.
It was sad to put this in the Bone Pile...................
 
But NOW - an idea.................when something doesn't work - well, cover it up with something else !!!!
 
 
So, this is three doilies.  the bottom is the biggest, the second one is the pale yellow/orange color, and then the smallest one on top.  I love how the pale orange peeks through !

 
 
 

And there will be BEADS, too ! They hold the lace down.
 
Oh I am so happy this piece is released from the Bone Pile .
 
Now to get it finished up.  Mostly that means finishing up this center medallion, and then finishing the binding, hanging sleeve, and label...
 
Deadline for the New Quilts of California Competition is August 1...  I'm just gonna make it, I think.
 
Stay tuned for finished photos.

Great save from the Bone Pile. It looks wonderful so far and with beads will be lifted even more.
