Thanks for the suggestions on where to go with my scorched Baby Jane blocks. It was good to get a reality check as I was about to scrap the lot and start from scratch! But I think I’ve got a plan of attack now.
First off, I’m going to find a true white fabric and use that for the remaining blocks. I’m also going to redo I-1, L-7 and B-12 which are the top three in this pic:
I’m not keen on the fabric in I-1 as a Baby Jane fabric. I think there’s too much white in it and it hides the block pattern. The scorching in L-7 is really obvious to me and as it’s a simple block, I can quickly redo it. B-12 is also really simple so it’s getting the redo treatment too.
I’m not redoing the complicated ones (A-2 and C-10 – the bottom two in the pic). I’ll see how bad they look if and when I get the rest of the blocks finished and redo if I’m not happy.
So that solution sounds easy enough, the only problem is finding the right white. I thought Kona cotton might be the answer because if I could get my hands on a Kona Colour Card, I would be able to pick a white to match the existing one. But I’ve been on the hunt for one of these for a while and no-one in the UK was selling them… until Thursday.
Simply Solids now sell them so I immediately snaffled one up and delivery was so speedy that when it appeared in the mail I wasn’t expecting it and couldn’t think what was in the package, LOL! Isn’t it just so pretty…
I could look at the colours all day!
But the whites are the important section…
It looks like Kona White (1387) is the right white, so I just have to order some of that and I’ll be back in business!
