After reading your comments this is where I am.
1. I can't seem to move on to new work until I finish this. I seem to be haunted by unfinished projects so I need to so something.
2. In a perfect world, one in which I hadn't so heavily quilted this piece I could
a. Easily add or remove fabric or
b. do some stitching of cloud shapes either with hand stitched or machine
3. I want to get this to a place where I can see it daily and not cringe or groan is disgust.
4. I am OK with throwing this in the rubbish but I think it is salvageable, at least I think so.
So in an effort to do as little as possible, what do you think of this:
I kind of like the one below better - more stable. And you? However the thicker dark at the bottom does add weight - needed weight at the bottom.
I went through all my fabric and dark green actually looked quite good but I didn't have enough. Then I came across 6 values of blue, the one above being the darkest.
Then I decided the fold down the top most section a little and as much as I could.
I like the bottom most except for the fact that now the yellow strip is in dead center. Then again beggars can't be choosers and can I actually live with this?
If I go with the last choice I will probably leave 1/2 to 1 to maybe 1 1/2" of the top most section so it isn't a straight edge.
I think this piece was doomed form the inception because of too straight pieces and too intense quilting. Live and learn. I am open again to feedback before I make the final decision.
