The quilter's Four letter word...

Posted by Strlady at 10:42 AM

I could leave it at that. Every quilter knows that THAT is the word that should not be spoken aloud. It is the nightmare of the perfectionist and has killed the hopes of many newbie quilters. Yes. Even after sooo many year at this, I get kicked in the a** by that dreaded thing.

Look at my beautiful quilt.

Bread and Butter was completed over the weekend.

Not take a closer look....

See the ripples? After struggling with templates and fabric placement, my last border killed my quilt. Should I take it off and redo? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND? That would be a NO.

I actually pulled it off my design wall, folded it up and put it way. Maybe I'll forget how disappointed I am in that last border and send it to get quilted someday. For now...it has been discarded as a lesson learned. Don't fool around with the big bad bias.

Oh, just have her do an all over stipple pattern when she quilts it. Once you toss it n the wash, add some snuggling love under it... add a good movie, a bowl of popcorn...yeah, I think the ripples will disappear. =) You're too hard on yourself. I think it's absolutely wonderful!
