What I am not pleased with is the wonk. You can see it in this picture. The bottom edge is lined up with the bottom line of my cutting mat. Look how far the top edge shifts to the left!
I haven't tried to block it yet. I'm not sure how to do it...but am pretty sure that doing it before quilting it is a good idea.
As to quilting it....I have two thoughts.
My first is to hand quilt it with pearl cotton .... echoing the bright bits in the text. I hesitate because there are a lot of seams to go through and I am not sure how my skill measures up to the task.
My second thought is to put it on my long arm and quilt this pattern on it.
The pattern is called Ribbon Dance by Vicki Malaski. I would quilt it out as one large pattern centered on the quilt....the wonk wouldn't be a problem here as the computer can adjust the shape for me.
What do you think?
How would you go about blocking it?
Should I start over for my swap partner and turn this beauty into a pillow?
