I was going to crochet overlay but this block I think came out bad. The center absorbed the most wrinkles. I made it from the tiny HST from MQ6 What would you do trash or finish up I'm open to any suggestions.
Quilting My Rainbow
That took too much work to trash it! It's so pretty. I'd use it. Probably once it's quilted, or has an overlay, the wrinkles wouldn't be noticed.
I think I need some form of yoga to figure this out Thanks for replying maybe I'll insert into another quilt or frame ...

How big is it? If you add a border or 2 would it be big enough for a bright, cheerful baby quilt. If you tie it at each intersection (instead of quilting), the ties will help camouflage the corners that don't match perfectly and the wrinkles too.
The Block is 12". I like it cuz its colorful just disappointed that the center is so wrinkly maybe I should use it to practise free motion?
make it into a pillow or a bed for your dog.
I think it would quilt out. Use a poly batting that has a little puff to it and practice some FMQ. Then use it for a pillow. It would be gorgeous! Or frame it.
I would do what Jeanine recommended, It would really be very bright and pretty, good job using the leftover fabric, Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
I would take that middle block out, and recut the blocks that are too big, resew and put the block back in the middle again. Next time you use scrap HST, you need to check the sizes of them....cut them all to the smallest one you are going to use and then use them.
When you put the block back in, sew opposite sides to reinsert. Then do the other two sides and press.
Thanks for replying I might make a pillow . Thanks for suggestions!
I made a quilt top where the middle was too baggy. I hand quilted the middle and machine quilted the edges, and it's turned out really well.
Don't spend too long on this one. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
Happy stitching, Lindsey Norfolk, UK
Well I bound it up , time to quilt forward.
So Pretty! Love how you used your 'scraps'!
Is, I think is looks very good ,nice bright colors and it will be a nice top to place on an end table to brighten up a room. Great you took your scraps and did something with them. Barbara
