SOLUTION - Design Problem Solved.

Yippee Skippee! Found a happy solution to the "blue really stands out" problem of this morning. I actually like this little Dish Mat now. Hope DD will, too.

Took my own advice and ADDed more Blue:
* Cut three 1.5 inch squares
* Applied Steam-A-Seam2 Light to squares
* Put prepared squares near the bottom
* Fused with Hot Iron
* ZigZag around edges

A little bit of quilting to hold top and towel [the backing] together and voila! Done. I think it is much better this way. This has been really bugging me. Now I can sleep tonight! lol

Thank you for stopping by. . .

Quilty Hugs,

Oh SWEET!! Love this dish rug and so will DD :)
This would also make a lovely mug rug if made a tad smaller with batting and backing. Very innovative :)

Great dish mat! It turned out great with te embroidery and the extra squares of color. It will make such a personal gift.

I think when a quilter almost WELCOMES issues so she can solve them, means you have risen to "Advanced Quilter." 8-)))
