I thought I'd share the outcome of how I solved the problem.
Here is how it first looked....
...actually that first picture is probably taken after applying a bit of spit....I also dabbed it with a bit of lemon juice once it was off the frame, which did lighten it up a bit but not totally.
Here is what I did next. I appliqued a little "band-aid" in matching background fabric, which has worked in the past but this still shouted "here I am" to me....
I probably could have left it at that, but it was bothering me.
Here is my final (I think) solution...
So, Happy Days is now a real quilt....with only half of the binding still to sew down! It's such a cheerful quilt :)
I quite like the background quilting in this quilt. It was easy and fun to do, so I will definitely be doing this again.
Today I am linking up with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social, and with Susan at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers.
It's a snowy, blustery morning where I am....a perfect day for visiting bloggers to see what they are up to!
