Meet Nantucket
« on: November 21, 2014, 06:49:11 PM »
Two years ago, I made a quilt that I despised once it was done.  It hung in the closet until this Spring.  I named it "Rotten Bananas".  Asked a quilting friend whose opinion I trust and cherish, to critique it and honestly advise if I should send it to the landfill or what could be done.  I tore the whole quilt top apart, down to the individual blocks and created two laps.  This is the first one I named "Nantucket".  I started to land quilt the sister lap quilt "Martha's Vineyard" this afternoon.
Am planning on gifting both this Christmas.  Thanks for looking.            Lisa

I like it too. I can't imagine it being part of something you didn't like.
Hope to see the other one soon....

Thanks Bev & Debbi,  When I finish with the second one, I'll look for the picture of the original "Rotten Bananas" and you can see for yourself.  There was just no calm place for the eyes to rest on the original.

I cannot imagine those fabrics resembling any kind of "rotten bananas".  Good thing you followed your better instincts and kept it hanging around, just so you could pass the joy this Christmas.

Well, here is Rotten Bananas - you be the judge.  I just hated it.  Only thing that remains of the original design (other than the repurposed blocks) is the border which resides in the bottom of a plastic tub.

I like Nantucket, and Rotten Bananas.  But what is it they say?  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?  Your quilt, your decision...only one that really matters. :)  Great repurpose of your original quilt into two that you like and will use or pass on. Now to see Martha's Vineyard.

OK, I concede that there is one block in "rotten bananas" that looks a tad bilious, but the rest of it looks fine to me, but we tend to not appreciate our own workings.

Oh Yooper,  I haven't heard the term bilious used in years but you are so right.  I think I have a picture of "Martha's Vineyard" top somewhere, I'll check it out and post it soon.  It will be close to Christmas before the hand quilting is done on it.        Lisa

I like Rotten Bananas but did we ever see the finished second one here? My mind is messing with me and I just don't remember seeing it here on under pictures.
Hope they are both done.

I wouldn't mess with you Debbie!  I'm a card holder in the CRS Club.  I took pics of "Martha's Vineyard" yesterday.  Will download and post this weekend.  Had a health distraction on Tuesday and haven't accomplished a thing since then.  Onward and upward!
