Week in Review 2019 – 09/13

Usually I crop my photos to give the illusion of precise 90 degree corners. Not this time. Those are the true edges.

Practice, practice and more practice and it still isn’t right. That is how I feel when facing quilts. But wait… queue the drumroll, this time when I turned my facing to the back of the quilt every single corner was square.

My husband had fun selecting different details to zero in on.
But how?

What did I do differently? I wish I knew. What I do know is I was very, very patient doing every step of the process methodically. When I turned the facing to the back, I paid particular attention to the edge ironing it to knife-like precision, redoing as necessary.

This is my favorite of the seven or so detail shots he gave me to choose from.
Now what?

The next challenge is to see if I can replicate my success with my future faced artwork. For now, I’m going to relish a moment of success.

I am linking up with Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Fridays.

I am an artist who uses fabric, thread and miscellany to create designs gifted to me by my imagination.


  1. I see MANY successes in this project! The message, the vision, the style, the talent-just to name a few. Brava!

    1. Fiber art may not have quilt police, but that doesn’t stop us from judging our own work harshly. Dog-eared corners are fine if they enhance the art. However, if the goal is a piece with sharp corners, because sloppy isn’t what you going for, it sure is a joy to achieve crisp corners. Thank you, Norma, for your positive input.
