So I didn’t up cutting of the quilt piece that I started yesterday. (thanks for all your encouragement) I just started adding pieces on, one at a time and this is as far as I got today. By the time I got to this point, I was tired and starting making mistakes. Like sewing the pieces of fabric on backwards. But it bugged me leaving it looking so unfinished, and I knew I was close and didn’t want to lose my rhythm. So I played around with if for a while, laying out some pieces of fabric, and this is what happened:
A little bit too much blue on top, so I finished for the day with something like this…
and I’ll be back at it on Monday.

How awesome is that! Hope all of your posters, including me, didn’t pressure you into feeling you had to continue with it (rather than cut it up). I’m glad it worked out for you. Hope you feel good about it now. Thanks for sharing.
I actually didn’t see the posts until I made my decision not to cut it up JoAnne, but it seems like it was a good way to go.
OH did adding new pieces work or what !!!!! Good for you hanging in….you really worked thru this well. It’s lovely.
I just read the previous post and was hoping you didn’t cut it up because it was so beautiful. Then I come to your blog and there’s the title, “I Didn’t Cut It,” making me smile. It looks great!
I got so many responses not to cut it up, but I didn’t see them until I decided not to cut it up. Seems it worked out right.
Perfect. The addition of the dark red shade worked well, wondered where else you were going with it, love the blue, your eye moves around the quilt top to bottom, then the little added dark red shade…perfect solution.
Good on you, Maria,

Yeah, Sandy, the dark red seems to hold it all together.
so glad you didn’t cut it up; it’s coming together beautifully.
Rich, vibrant, exciting, really beautiful piece! It seems to dance. I love this one.
