I have had my Carolina Christmas Mystery Quilt (top) finished for a long time, but I couldn't bring myself to quilt it because I just didn't love it. I loved the blocks until I put them together. I don't think there was enough contrast and the blocks just kind of blurred together. I started taking it apart because I was thinking I should put sashing between the blocks. Then I thought maybe I will take it all apart and not like the sashing! A lot of sewing and ripping if it wasn't going to make a difference.
I put the part of the quilt still pieced on my design wall and took a picture. I put the blocks on my design wall with some sashing to get an idea of how it might look. I think I am doing the right thing. I think I like it with the sashing better.
