Oh No!!

Today was NOT a good day in my
Hidey Hole!

I haven't had a quilting disaster in a while,
today it happened.

I need to make a
Christmas Tree Skirt for a wedding gift
for the beginning of October
and today I was able to work on it.

The fabrics looked nice together...
I cut the pieces....
and sewed them into a tree skirt.

There is WAAAYYY too much of the orangy/red...

And the fabrics fight with each other in this design.
I love all of the fabrics, but not together in this pattern!

At some point I'll take it apart and change one of the fabrics,
but for now...
I need to start a new one!

Let's hope this doesn't happen again for a long time!

Happy Quilting!

I don't think it's that bad. And once it's covered with presents ..... Nevertheless, I know the feeling--just not what you expected it, wanted it, to be. I'm going through that with my last set of Halloween blocks -- I had four pieces in a block to trim and trimmed 5!! And that after I had picked out 8 seams. Must have been something in the air....

There is a lot going on with the two prints Do you have a Christmas print that is mostly dark green in place of the large poinsettia print? just a thought
