So this morning, when I was taking pictures of my Totally Groovy quilt for my post, it was incredibly windy. I am amazed I got any shots since the quilt spent most of it's time up in the air. Anyway, the wind died down a little by midday, so I thought I would try to take some pics in a different area along the white fence that separates our driveway from the neighbors yard. It seemed like a good choice as the white is pretty neutral. To get the quilt to hang on the fence, I picked up two bricks to weigh down the top as I draped it over. Of course, before any pictures were taken, one of the bricks fell, ON the bottom corner of the quilt, and...
Not one but two holes!
They go straight through. I am beside myself! This quilt was supposed to be a gift for a "totally groovy" guy in my family and it is ruined because I got greedy with the camera.
The affected area is that lower right hand corner.
The way I see it, I have two options:
1) unbind the entire quilt, then cut off a few inches (and the holes) along the width of the quilt, rebind. This would make the quilt a few inches less tall (it will still be plenty big), and I would lose that little yellow spot, and the yellow spot on the bottom left will be even smaller, but the rest of the design of the quilt would essentially be unaffected.
2) patch the quilt in some way over both holes and requilt the daylights out of those areas. I am less fond of this option as I think it would look crappy.
Or?? Do you have any suggestions?
