I mentioned in my previous post that I was about to hibernate Phebe for a while as I am not really happy with the way it's going. Debra asked what the problem is and the short answer is I don't really know! I think the issue is that I am trying back basting on this one, I have used this method before on other projects but nothing as detailed as this. I like the fact that you can position fabrics easily but I am frustrated that my applique on this is not as neat as with regular needle turn. The leaves and berries are fused as I could not get these right at all and they are starting to peel off ;o(
I am really not enjoying working on this quilt!
I like the fabrics I have chosen, so I want to ask - what would you do? Should I start over or carry on?
This is a large quilt, I still have a long way to go. Photo of the complete quilt from the Threadbear website. The pattern is available from them HERE
