Let me just say, AAARRRGGGGGGHHHHHH.
Why do I do this to myself??!!???!!!
A friend saw the quilt I sold on eBay and asked if I could make him one for his friend back in the US, who has a little boy. He wondered if I could add an Australiana element to the patchwork.
I had been looking for an excuse to go fabric shopping, and so picked up a 1/4 of this fantastic vintage Holden cars print against a map of Australian roads:
It wasn't until about 24 hours after about 16 solid hours of quilting that I realised I had a serious problem. Every single design I tried sucked. Then I realised:
IT'S NOT ME.
The colour scheme. The "cutesy" aspect of the print. NONE OF IT IS MY STYLE.
And I've already told him about my purchase.
So now I just have to make it work!!!
Deep breath. I'm starting all over again.
